Crossfire 5770sFollow

So I'm doing an overhaul of my computer and I've got a lot of options for video cards. The expensive but obviously good route would be getting an HD 5870, 5970, or GTX 480. On the other hand I currently have one XFX 5770, and I could get a second 5770 which would be WAAAAY cheaper than getting any of the three I mentioned before.

I would like to know if anyone has Crossfired 5770 1GB video cards and how they work with FFXIV. Also include what you have the clock speeds set to if not stock. Mine are at 850/1200.

I use 2 5770's in crossfire. Mine are clocked at 875/1250. Though I have a couple issues with a 'tearing line' (for lack of a better description) sometimes appearing and going up and down the bottom half of my screen, I'm satisfied. No amount of tweaking has made it worse/better, so I'm going to assume it's the radeonpro program I'm using for crossfire.

Overall, I'm happy with it. for some odd reason though, my fried (identical system) gets no performance boost with crossfire whereas I get a noticeable one. H e also gets much better performance with 1 card then I do tho0ugh so it evens out, though odd since we're also on the same 'grid' (is that the right word?) for our internet as well.

Edit: spelling

you can fix this 100% with D3Doveridder, it s a part of RivaTuner OC program.

I run a single 5870, and also experience some pretty frustrating screen tearing while playing in full screen mode, maybe it's an ATI driver/hardware issue?

Were you able to get this to work in full screen windowed, or just true full screen mode?

I also want to get another 5770 but I refuse to play in true full screen.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try it when I get home, have to get to work right now.

It may be a driver issue, but I get it no matter what driver I'm using. It may be, but it's an issue with all the drivers if that's so.

I play in True Full Screen, I don't think it's possible to run Crossfire in windowed full screen, though I've never looked into it myself. I JUST (just as in today) received a new laptop (free laptop is free lol) for looking stuff up anyway so it's not as big of an issue to me it was when I first started the game last week.
