I have two 2 x SAPPHIRE 100297-2L Radeon HD 5830 Xtreme. But are hardly used and I may sell them and get one really good card. Based on the AMD Gigabyte MB I have that can do x16x16 should I stick with an ATI/AMD Graphics card or is it ok to go with MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Maximum PC's best of the best item).

Or should I just Crossfire what I have?

Also, after I sell my old system I can make tweaks to this one if you have any helpful ideas.

Thanks!!

The 5830s in xfire would be similar in performance to one 560ti if that helps at all.

That does help. No sense in selling the two cards I have if they will perform about the same as the better model.
