Well i'd better join, had crossfire setups for a long time now. I've currently got a 5970 but my history is:

  • 5970
  • 4870x2
  • 3870x2
  • 2x x1950xtx (back in the days of master and slave cards, and the external crossfire cable to connect the 2 together, ugh that was a PITA but was wicked fast).

I've seen almost every problem you can get with crossfire, so i'll provide what help i can if people find issues (although today's issues are a lot less common than the issues in early crossfire setups - you guys don't know how lucky we are :p)

it should work fine, you might have 5-10%MAX difference from a 16x16x board

nah dont want YOU here CP, :laugh:

yeah you can, but ONLY if you get another 5770 in the future :roll:

Every game I fire up has flickering/glitchiness issues. Both cards at stock speeds, 10.2 drivers.

mmmmh looking smexy man:rockout:

Don try swapping the cards/swapping bridges too.

How much of a difference are you seeing with 2 x HD 5770's and 3 x 5770's? Is the performance improvement worth the cost of all 3 cards?

Thanks :)

no not at ALL, maybe if you go above 1920x1080.

but under that, i dont really have any improvements at all, but i got the card cheap, so i might as well try it out to see if it was worth it:D
but will try out on a i7 tomorrow at 4ghz, i think my cpu might be a bottleneck somehow, even at 3.8-4.0ghz
