Hello, I will soon be buying these parts:

ASRock M3A770DE
Phenom II 965BE
2x4GB Kingston DDR3 1333Mhz RAM

and around Christmas I should have the money to buy an HD7850 and a nice Corsair 600W PSU, but Only if I manage to sell my HD6750 and CoolerMaster Elite 460W. So I was wondering would it be viable for gaming to just buy a second HD6750 1GB GDDR5 since that motherboard supports up to Quad Crossfire. Of course I will buy another Power Supply because I am pretty sure that one would blow up with a second card :)

Getting a 7850 would be the better choice. It would have awesome performance also, and if you ever wanted to CFX it, it would be a better choice than a 6750.

Yeah, but I can only get it if I manage to sell my current PSU and GPU. I know it's better to get the HD7850 but I want to know if the dual HD6750 is a viable gaming solution ?

I would rather buy 6790 or 6770 and put em in crossfire with 6750...

Hmm, I know that you can put an HD6770 and HD6750 in CF but can you do it with a 6750/6790 combo? Don't 6790's use different GPU's from the 6770/6750?

Go for the best single card solution currently available to you, which seems to be the 7850. This is the standard rule for GPUs, especially for AMD cards. If you have only 1 card, you avoid all the headaches associated with microstuttering and driver issues.

Hmm, I've seen quite a few positive things about both Crossfire and SLI but I guess they were just BS. I know about the microstutter in some games and 3d programs, but didn't think much of it. Thanks a bunch guys :)

I say this ALL of the time. Don't go dual card. It will give you more headaches than pleasure. You can get microsttutering, driver issues and game issues. I have used both SLI and Crossfire and they really do suck overall.

I think you don't know how to set up or build a PC properly, I have built and used quite a few SLi rigs and have not had any headaches or microstuttering, maybe it's just you that sucks.

No, 2x6750 is useless solution. I was using 6770 for a few months, than I got 7770, and it's really better when using 1920x1200. Crossfire of two 7770 is little bit faster than 7850, so 6750... forget it =)
By the way -there are NO clear tests of 7770 crossfire vs. 7850 - nowhere!
if you know where to check it - link please

I have already bought new parts (GPU excluded), and I don't think I will be getting one soon. Even If I do it would be the HD7790 since it's the best Price/Performance card where I live.
