    As title really, what is the best ATI GPU for around £100 or X-Fire for £150 - £200?

    I have been looking at the MSI PE Transthermal 7770 ATI cards single and X-Fire, they are fairly cheap. Would i be better off with a single or 2x 6800 series ATI? I want ATI purely because my board is X-Fire.

    Thanks.

    P.S. Gaming, Game Engines, Modelling, Animation etc etc...

    Always better to have single card solution, but if you already have a graphics card you might want to consider Crossfire.

    You don't need anything specific for modelling and animation.



    As far as gaming the best value card IMO is the ATI 6850 as its only £100.
    (6870 is £35-40 more for little extra performance. Not worth it!)

    The ATI 7770 is slightly slower than the 6850 and costs about the same. So not a good choice.

    The fastest card you can get within your budget is the 7850 for £180.
