6970 + 6950 in crossfire questions.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
do any of you out there in overclock-land run this particular config ? I'm thinking of buying a 6950 2gb TF3 to pair with my xfx reference 6970. I know that they will both now run at the speed of the slower 6950. How much performance will I be sacrificing in the interest of saving 100$ or so ? I can't seem to find an answer online that will satisfy me. Will I have problems syncing the clocks, mem, etc. Driver issues ? If I'm only looking at losing 10% performance vs a pair of 6970's then that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. Any more than that and I'll likely rethink my strategy and save a bit longer. I play a lot of Crysis 1 and 2, will of course be playing BF3 as well. Thanks in advance for all your help. If I decide to go this route I may as well trade my 6970 for maybe a matching TF3 ?

I think you should save up for another 6970.
