Nah, there are 3 threads discussing GPUs and crossfiring, 2 of them involving 5770s, I just wish at least one would get resolved.
From the AMD forums:
Q: What about the brand, clock speed and memory size ?
A: You can use diffrent brands, but always make sure to match the clock speed and memory size. It is true that if the clock speed do not match, the faster card will match the slower clocked speed card. For best performance, matching identical cards should be used.
From Tom's Hardware (insert 5770 for 5870):
you can Crossfire HD 5870 2GB with it's 1GB version but the 2GB version lowers it's memory to 1GB,so you'll get the performance of 2 5870's with 1GB RAM.
Curious as to what your current motherboard is, specifically why you want a card that only uses 1 slot.
A cursory look at the 5770s available on Newegg and it looks like there aren't any single slot cards. Granted something like this
only uses one rear cutout slot, but the fan/heatsink on the side will overhang whatever slot is next to it internally anyway.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
Nobody wants to read a wall of text, formatting is your friend.
