    Yep but with sticks of 4gb DDr2 prices that is sort of useless and 4gb of ram with crossfire is also not great

    Yes it will be returned as is

    4GB of memory is fine for crossfire. If you need to get 2x4GB set, they are VERY cheap these days.

    It works with 4gb yes but each 2gb extra ram equates to 5-10 fps extra.

    I would have thought so too but apparently not so cheap. $99 each stick I was told and I can not find any cheaper

    I'm pretty annoyed by it all atm and have opened a paypal dispute to see if I can be refunded

    You can get 2x4GB at newegg for 140-160USD, can't call it cheap.
    5-10fps per 2GB, is something i must see... can you provide references?

    Wow, that's expensive! 8GB here is only about $40-50 US, that is very cheap! Of course there are some that cost more too, but some less than that even. Average 1600Mhz 2x4GB set is $30-50

    Not sure what you guys are looking at for US prices?

    I even see a set for $15 right now, with free shipping
    Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Memory, Desktop Memory, 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM, 8GB (2 x 4GB), DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

    CAS 7 & 8 1600Mhz sets start around $50 though, but CAS 9 is very cheap, and that's not bad for CAS 7 or 8 either starting at 50

    2 problems with the 2x4gb solution. 1.Newegg dont post to Australia. 2.If they would post it to me, postage would be around $50 (unfortunately your postage system cost huge $ to here)


    I did benchmark the setup several times with different ram but didn't bother to get a copy of all of them. Some of them are here 5770 crossfire

    2x4gb DDr3 starts at $55 here http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=19632
