Hello, I just built a new computer for me. Im looking for a new video card to replace my now old hd 5770. Im opened to SLI or Crossfire, but I would stick to buying 1 card for now or 2 cheaper cards that would give me that extra juice. I dont really know where to start looking for this so i figured, any help would be appreciated.

PC specs:

Ati hd 5770 saphire
P8z68-v gen 3 Asus MoBo
2x(4GB) 1600 kingston RAM
750W Cooler Master power supply
i7 2600k
OCZ agility 3 120GB SSD



Thank you !

for your build it would be better to get an single hd 7950 because its a powerful card and will give you 40% more performance then the hd 5770.buy sapphire for better performance and low price:)

or it will be better to wait 2 more months i think the price of hd 7950 will drop to $420 or less.

How much more performance compared to 2x cheaper cards ?

buying 2x cheaper card is not a good idea because if u come to an hd 5770 x2 it will give less performance then hd 6870 and a single hd 7950 will give twice performance of hd 6870 so the hd 7950 will give 4x better performance then 2x cheaper cards.

the 7950 is a lot more powerful than the 5770. its not really even close. you are looking at more than 2x the fps in games 1080p.

5770 x2 is actually close in performance to a single GTX 580 not a 6870.

6870 x2 is a good bit more powerful than a GTX 580.

crossfire 5770 is about as powerful as 6970 or the 570, not more powerful than the 580.

looks like performance ranges varies a lot and is closer to the 6950 performance.

5770/6770 CF is usually close or right under GTX 580 in allot games 5770/6770 CF is highly underrated combo and dirt cheap now in days $200 + or - a few bucks. http://www.guru3d.com/article/his-radeon-6770-iceqx-tur... Read or looks at the whole review I enclosed it tells it all.

I think the 6770 got better Crossfire scaling as a perk over 5770 otherwise they are the same cards.


they are not same i know that hd 6770 is rebadged of hd 5770 but hd 6770 gives more better performance then hd 5770.:)

its one of the high end gpu in hd 6770 series and it will give much better performance then hd 5770 so no need to compare that card to hd 5770

6770 is the exact same GPU as 5770 there is no difference between the 2 however drivers gave better CF scaling when the 6770 hit the market.

the 6770 might have some additional tessellation hardware support, not sure on that one.

That is what the professional reviewers have said and generally what the GPU developers do to save and make more money is re badge and resell makes sense and is true. About the 6770 getting better drivers that is just my personal opinion and not fact but it is based on the fact that they do seem to scale better than the 5770s and to my knowledge 5770 and 6770 can be Crossfired together.
