so as you can see from toms home page, the 7870 and 7850 have been benchmarked.

The problem is from the benchmarks, they dont look like much of an improvement from my crossfired 5770's.

The main games i planned to get them for is Metro2033 and Crysis 2. Basically the only games i cant max out at 1920x1080.

What do you think?

Think a little. Now one card can play what you play with two cards. The 7850,7870 are verry economic ( power).Buy one now and add another one in the future.

You'll also be getting additional Vram to help with some texture/AA heavy games. :)

If I recall correctly, I believe CF 5770s usually wound up between 5850 and 5870 performance, so a 7850 or 7870 will be a fairly good upgrade from that.
