    Hey Guys, just wanted to know if there is any issue with putting 2x 5770's in a MP1,1?

    I'm also wondering if I could just get 1x 5770 and move my 8800 GT to the 8x slot. If they would work together or if having and nvidia and ati card together is a bad combo.

    (I have to drive 2 large dual-link monitors)

    I had two 5770's in my cart, but chickened out and thought I should ask if I am making any assumptions that I can run 2x 5770's in my MP 1,1..

    And if the cheaper option of 1 5770, next to 8800 is a viable option, or a stability issue?

    You can run two 5770s if you like, or a 5770/8800 GT if you like. There won't be any problems either way.

    Awesome thank you. I just need to look into the power consumption of the 8800 to see what the 5770 + 8800 would total.

    8800 GT is 105W and ATI 5770 is 108W according to their manufacturers, so 213W in total.
