Hey guys, i need to ask 2 things:
1 is crossfire with 2 6770s good for modern gaming? i cant afford a single card solution so is this a good alternative? Benchmarks have put 2 6770s at 69xx series performance.
2 Will a 550, 600w psu be able to crossfire these cards?
Thanks :)

1 YES
2 a quality 550-600watt will do it, 600watt is recommended.

The biggest problem I see with a 6770 setup is that those cards are very prone to microstuttering in crossfire. Microstuttering doesnt bother some people, and it makes games unplayable for others. Personally it annoys the hell out of me, which is why I pretty much always go with a powerful single card.

Sounds good, would a Corsair
CX600 V2 do the job?

well beyond microstuttering it is unusual for low mid radeon cards to scale much in terms of minimum fps which is something that i personally care a lot about but to each his own..

personally Id sell the 6770 and grab an ebayed 6950 or something like that... save up some paychecks and make the smart purchase that is...

no one likes to canibalize their parts but in this case I dont think you'll benefit much by buying another 6770 but you can sell your current card and come out of pocket ~75 bucks and have yourself a 6950 off ebay, its your decision...

I see where your coming from, but again i dont have the money for a single card solution even if i would sell my 6770. Plus the reviews i have read on crossfired 6770s have said that they scale well and don't have micro-stutter. As soon as i put the card in i wouldn't jump to 1080 resolution gaming, i would stick to a bit lower resolution so i can max games with no issues. So its seams ill be going with the crossfire configuration.

No, i understand. But buy another 6770 is my Only option right now. I dont have a source of income at the moment but if i did i would most definitively save up, sell the 6770 and get a 6870 or a 6950. But sadly its not a option for me :(  But the crossfire config gets good scores so im happy with that. And thanks i most definitively will have fun! :D
