Hey guys..

Currently I got a AMD Phenom 2 1100T with a AMD 5870 1GB, 16GB DDR3 @ 1600MHZ / Cheapo Gigabyte GA880GM-USB3 MicroATX mobo (Temporary)

I can play Crysis 2 on Full SPEC at 1080p rez and get between 15-30fps avg
using DX 11 & High RES

I force clock my CPU to a MAX of 3300MHZ at 1.25v for all 6 cores using K10STAT

Anyone think the ASrocK High END AMD mobos are ok? like the EXTREME 4 or the TOP one.?!?

I am looking for a cheap upgrade and seen the 7770HD Crossfire Reviewed and some websites shows it KICKS A$$ and some show it performs crappy.
I have seen it Surpasses 7950 on some reviews for crysis

then seen it perform much less

I am guessing 1 year ago when it was reviewed the drivers or something might have impacted the results.

So I am asking for real world experience of this configuration. I think Amd is also gonna release a set of cards soon to fit the 7700-7800 area (Maybe a 7790) who knows! I read that somewhere about the fill gap of 7700-7800

anyways I am interested in knowing if the 7770 in CF is a good choice for under 250 AU (about 110-130each) thats cool!!!

Thanks
Shaun

no. crossfire 7770 is crap. NEVER start your build with low end crossfire cards. Start with the best single card you can afford, and maybe crossfire if they are at least a mid tier gpu like 7850 or 7870 in the future. not to mention the 7770 is limited in most games including crysis 2 by 1gb vram, which many modern games will fill up, and when that happens it swaps back and forward to system memory giving lower fps and stuttering. you already have a 5870, if crysis 2/3 are going to be your main games than upgrading to a gtx660 or 7870 will give you a good performance boost particularly in dx11 games and is about the same price as 2x 7770's.
