Should i upgrade my card all together or just buy a second for cf ?

i have a 5770 and am thinking about either upgrading the card or adding a second card.

my budget is between 150-200 per card.

The games i mostly play are mmorpg style games ill list a few.

rift.
swtor

i also play world of tanks. This is actualy the game that im having trouble running as well as i would like too.

If i were to purchase another 5770 would i be able to run all the new mmos for a couple years with decent framerates (60+fps or faster) ?

on world of tanks im getting from 20 to 124 fps but it is very sporadic and probably averages 40fps however the slow downs are killing me.

    I would upgrade to either a 560ti or a 6950. Currently you can get either one for 20 dollars over your price limit.
  2. A 5770 crossfire is powerful but if all you play is MMO's I would suggest going for a more powerful single card solution,that way you avoid all the problems assoicated with crossfire.

    What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM,et.)

    What is the make/model of your PSU?

    If you can afford it I would suggest getting this card.It's $230 but after a MIR it's $200.It also comes with Dirt 3.This card is the best bang for your buck.

    2 Things about that card: first, if you are a Newegg e-Blast subscriber there is a promo code for $10 off that card, second, it is only 3 eggs with 99 reviews, not very good.

    For your budget I would recommend a 560Ti from Newegg.

  4. I would go for the Gigabyte GTX560ti since it has better cooling than the XFX 6950.Both are the same price point too.
