Have a graphics card dilemma I wish to ask the PC board.

I built my system maybe...3-4 years ago? I forget. Anyways I have room to SLI...or crossfire whatever...my video card but want to know if it s worth it to buy 2nd video card, or just upgrade.

The card I have is XFX HD-587X-ZNFV Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP.

I found a couple on eBay for like $100-$120, now do you think it would be worth it to get another one, or just spend $400ish on a brand new card? I'm torn, thank you for any input.

At this point, I would just buy a new card.

You should get a new card. 1 GB of RAM won't be enough through this next generation so you should get something with 3GB+ like a 7970

Wait for the new line of GPUs from AMD to come out, and then upgrade. Although the HD 7950 is a steal these days, they can easily be found for $200.
