  1. one 6870, you should get this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150506

    it will be practically the same performance without all the headaches of crossfire, then just sell your 5770 on ebay and you'll be set--> then you can buy another 6870 down the road! :)

    also you should overclock that cpu! its very overclockable with the right cooler

    you have 6870 in CF before right?
  3. Another vote for one 6870 now then one later on.
    That's exactly what I'm doing. :D

    I also recommend the card jjb8675309 linked you to.
    It's a wonderful card. Looks great. Performs amazingly well.
    You also get an awesome deal on price with that MIR (which I just remembered, I need to send mine in).
    XFX has fantastic support as well. You also get Shogun 2, free.
