    4770 in CF.. uses less power.. and pwns most of the high end cards.. moreover costs less..

    Yup, get 2xHD4770..
    X-Fire of HD4850 isn't a good choice coz it tends to run hot and need more power .

    Also the same with GTS250? GTS250 SLi pawns most of the cards within 15k.....

    ^^ Thanks rajkumar_pb . . .
    Now, going for hd4770 X2 . . but can't go for gts250 sli ( no sli support in my mobo) ...
    and this is the final round-up question . . . :)
    Should i go for
    1. MSI hd4770 - 7.2k
    2. XFX hd4770 - 8.5k
    Both of the specs looks the same....

    Your hitting the sweet spot for price + performance..XFiring the 4770s.

    Just keep a tight watch on temperatures and power consumption. Though with your PSU you should be good to go.
