Ok but does 1x 5870 perform 33% better on average? Because it's 33% more expensive than 2x 5770's.
Are new drivers seriously going to bump up the figures that much? I'm happy to know, if they do! And I'm not ignoring advice, I'm happy to take on board any valid points. Given my budget of £850 for the base unit, I wouldn't be able to get a 5870 in there anyway. But why would I want to? Have the drivers improved that much since Guru's review? Because their review showed 2x 5770's outpacing 1x5870 in most games and UNLESS the driver improvements have ramped up the 5870's performance by AT LEAST 33%, then the 5770 crossfire idea is better performance-per-pound, given the price difference.
If I'm wrong, let me know, but I'd like to be able to read some review or benchmark results showing that Guru's review is that
out of wack
