So i have had this Gigabyte radeon hd7850 windforce 2gb for a while now and im thinking of upgrading. But im unsure if i should buy an Asus radeon hd7970 Dcii top 3gb, and replace the gigabyte GPU or if i should buy another Gigabyte GPU and crossfire them. What give best performance. Oh, and its for gaming.

More aboutreplace crossfire
whynot slap ina second 7850 would be quite leet as a crossfire :S
If you can sell your 7850 for about $150 ish its a good deal to grab a 7970 and not worry about crossfire
If you can't get a good price just grab another 7850 and cf
And yeah why are you thinking of upgrading? The 7850 is a great overclocker and can match the 7870 and even a bit more
ya i mean 2 7850s is great performance.
2x7850s can match a 7970 im pretty certain actually.
Thanks for all the replies. I will probably put in another 7850. Im putting in because im considering to get a triple monitor. Will two 7850 have enough power to let me use a triple monitor setup if i turn down the settings in games?
