It does, doesn't it?

I was considering it, but then I would have to spend the extra $100 to get a water block for it too. Then hope that my 480mm of rad space will cope with it.

I think I am happy with my single GPU solution at the moment; cheaper, quieter and less problematic.

You can run a 79xx and a 7850 in the same machine. I've ran my 670 with my 6850 before. You wouldn't be able to cross-fire them but boinc doesn't care.

I have a 7950 and a 7850 in my main rig and they run fine together. i just use a cc_config file to assign Dirt to the 7950 and POEM to the 7850 thumb.gif

But how is gaming on it? Does the computer get confused?

I imagine it would use whichever GPU is in the primary PCIe slot.

I have my 7950 in the first PCI-E slot and I play games just like I normally would. I have had no driver conflicts or problems of any kind - it's no problem at all thumb.gif

I have my 7970 in the first PCIe slot and a 6870 in one of the other slots. The 6870 folds 24/7, and I have no problems gaming on the 7970.

The only issue I had was finding the best driver for folding, BOINC, and gaming. I ended up using the 13.1 WHQL with an older openCL, and everything has been running great for the last 3 weeks.
