I recently obtained a slightly used ATI FireGL V7700 from a friend and wanted to know if it had any potential functionality for a the lower end gamer I am. I have sufficient space in my machine to add it in with my Radeon HD 5570 I just don't know if there's any beneft or even the ability to bridge the two together.

The 5570 covers most my current gaming needs but anything extra I could do at limited expense would greatly benefit me. The FireGL card doesn't have a HDMI output so I was hoping I could bridge the two and continue to use my current monitor.

Is there any use to even going forward or am I wasting my time?

You can't bridge the two, the 5570 is faster than the FireGL card, and the drivers for the FireGL card are different than for the 5570 and focused on OpenGL and professional programs vs DirectX and games.

Thanks for the response. I pretty much figured as much.
