So i'm thinking of upgrading my motherboard and CPU, i currently have a MSI P55A-GD65 with a Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz and i'm thinking of going with a Core I5-3450 and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH within the next week.

I allready have a Asus Rog Matrix 5870, so do i add another card so i have two 5870 for 200 bucks or do i go with one new XFX FX-787A-CDFC for 250 bucks?

or do i even upgrade the board and cpu and just keep them for another year and upgrade the video card or add another one so i'm running two 5870's

What do you guys think?

Thanks for the input

IMO... just upgrade the card... to the 7870 or higher.

Your mobo and cpu are good enough for another couple of years...

Crossfire can be good but I always prefer one powerful card... but that is your call totally

Better to go for the HD 7870. CF will not work with every game and might even decrease your performance

Your setup is good. If you don't experience stuttering,no need to change it.
Otherwise, like Ravyu and getbacktosrinu already said it.
