I hope not. I'll probably look into upgrading from my 9800GTX+ sometime this year.

my my....... that was unforeseen GTX470 & 480..???

i just want it to touch down now, i was gonna loose ATI & jump back to Nvidia (my first love), but the 5970 is really starting to excel with the newer drivers, so im gonna go TriFire with a 5770 & then chuck in a dedicated PPU (once i grab an X48)

once Fermi is released there's gonna be an ocean of lower end 5 series cards up for grabs b/c everyone is gonna make the jump...

ATI have failed to listen to customers & are far to sloppy in the driver development department for millions of ppl, so hopefully i'll use their failure to my advantage...

*ahem* I know 5770 was a typo since you meant add a 5850 for tri fire.

Since a 5770 can't be paired with a 5970.

Nope, the series rule still applies 57xx+57xx, or 58xx+58xx and since the 5970 is 58xx architecture, it can only be tried fired with another 58xx

Sorry mate

well....your right

after checking it seems the only CFX options i have are 58xx cards, not all 5xxx cards (still a little green with this ATI stuff)

that's a shame, im not paying for a 58xx card..... it was only an option when i could run the cheaper 5 series cards.

once fermi is released cheap ATI cards will be everywhere & grabbing a 5750-5770 would of worked out well..

who knows...i may still wanna jump ship when Nvidia's offering touches down.
