  1. guys my board only supports xfire and I'm currently sporting a gtx 460 I want to go with a xfire setup and have been offered a hf 4890 or I could sell the card and spend £40 more on a hd5770 any ideas as the performance seams pretty similar on both cards

    How important is DX11 to you?

    A more powerful single graphics card is better than a 5770 crossfire setup, less heat and noise and also if you go for CF you might need a new power supply.

    my current card is dx11 but I wouldn't mind going back to dx10 as I cant really see much differance so I might go for the 4890 and pick up a decent 5 series later when prices drop
