Depends how much you can sell the 7850 for

7970 ~ $400+
7850 ~ $185

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

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?
