Hi Folks,
I'm looking to upgrade my 2 year old gaming rig but could do with some help. I basically have a;

Asus evo board, Phenom II x4, Ati Radeon 5870,4G DDR3, Power supply is 700W.

The motherboard is crossfire ready so question is;

Do i get another 5870 and crossfire them or should I just get a better graphics card like a GTX 580? I'm not very software savvy so need an easy upgrade please.

I thought it was a graphics card upgrade you were looking for.

As for whether to go for CF or the 580,here's a comparison: Compare I personally am not keen on CF as I have always seem to get driver problems but its up to you and of course your budget.

Thanks geng, reference to software side is i'm not very good at updating the drivers,playing about with config etc.
