5770 crossfire amdx6 rig?

Hi there everybody!
I'm planning a rig for my son. Been reading about the 5770's in crossfire.
The review on them in cf was rather slim. Crossfire framerates missing in several games/benchmarks.
Tough, it seems these in pairs outmaches the single 5870 ???
At least in 1920*1020?
What would you recomend these days, if you were too chose betwen the gtx470, a 5870, a http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=593861 or a pair of 5770´s???


Btw, i am looking at a 1050x6AMD rig!

Peace, =XLB=ColdPlay

I would run the 5870. A single card is almost always better than dual. If the game isn't optimized for multiple video cards it can actually hurt performance. Plus you can always add a second card later if needed.
