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.
