HD 7770 Xfire or single 7850?

i brought a AMD 7770 for $80 a few days ago and i realized the card isn't that good :/ im wondering if i should sell it and get a 7850 or buy another one and use it with crossfire? what would be the best for gaming performance?

Processor: FX 6200 BE
RAM: 8 gig ddr3 1600
PSU: 950w
Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard

    Definitely go with the HD 7850. 2 low range cards like that in Xfire are notorious for micro-stutter problems.

  3. 7770 Xfire provides better performance... for games that support crossfire anyways...
  4. I have yet to notice any micro stuttering with xfire using 7770's, 7750's, 6670's, 3870's or 7770 and 7750 together in xfire...

    I will also say that the 7850 2GB offers the best price/performance of any single card, especially when overclocked.

    I base that on my experience with a pair of HD 6870s, others' experiences, and this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-geforce-stutter-crossfire,2995.html
    But as the article states, some folks just aren't bothered by M-S or don't notice it. I wasn't so lucky.
