So many unanswered questions so I come here to ask.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
  1. Can my PSU handle a Sabertooth instead of an MSI board?
  2. Can my PSU handle a 560Ti instead of a 5770?
  3. I'll be getting a new GPU soon, what do I do with the other one?
  4. Can I stick it in my mobo and use it for 24/7 folding?
  5. If I do that can I use my other GPU for games?
  6. Can my PSU handle both of those cards without a crossfire?
  7. Do cows think about computers?
  8. I'll probably get the Crysis 2 edition because it comes with Crysis and a t-shirt and its only 10 bucks more, is it worth it?
  9. The Crysis 2 edition is "Maxiumum" does that mean its faster?
  10. Will this GPU bottleneck my x4?
  11. On a scale of 1-10 how safe is it to OC on the Asus Sabertooth 990fx?
  12. Will a Bulldozer bottleneck my 560ti?

Yup.

Reps for anyone who can answer all that.

1. Sure why not.
2. Mmmhmm.
3. Sell it?
4. AMD GPUs don't fold so well, but I guess every little bit counts, so sure why not?
5. Yes.
6. It can't be crossfired or SLI'd because they aren't the same cards or manufacturers. But yes your PSU can handle it.
7. How should I know?
8. Depends. Do you think it's worth it? I don't...b/c I already have the previous Crysis games.
9. No, pure marketing.
10. Do you mean the other way around? If so then no.
11. 10 (But make sure you know what you are doing.)
12. Definitely not.

  11. On a scale of 1-10 how safe is it to OC on the Asus Sabertooth 990fx?
  12. Will a Bulldozer bottleneck my 560ti?

Yup.

Reps for anyone who can answer all that.
  1. yes
  2. yes
  3. whatever you want, mine are sitting on my desk
  4. I suppose, if you think it's worth it.
  5. ya
  6. Yes
  7. no
  8. Might as well, the shirt is probably worth it.
  9. No idea, look at the clock speeds on newegg
  10. no
  11. safe? No OC is safe compared to stock but if you stay within recommended voltages and what not, you shouldn't have a problem
  12. Bulldozer isn't even out yet, but hopefully it wont haha...
post #5 of 14
Yes

yes

sell it or keep it as a backup or sumfin

not advisable because of amd gpu performance in folding, but you could do BOINC with it!

yes

yes

probably not

if you want crysis 2 really bad, yes, if not.. no

no.

probably factory overclocked, so technically yes but you can manually overclock just as easily

probably a 9 for conventional OCing. as for LN2/DICE/etc... not sure. probably still solid

not by a longshot

yes
yes
build a new computer or fold, but amd cards arent great for that. You could mine bitcoins instead.
yep, but see above
yep
yep
i hope not
no
nope
The 560ti? Probably, but almost unnoticeably. Dont forget to OC your cpu
10?
not released yet, but id say no.

    Yes
  2. Can my PSU handle a 560Ti instead of a 5770?
    Yes
  3. I'll be getting a new GPU soon, what do I do with the other one?
    Sell It
  4. Can I stick it in my mobo and use it for 24/7 folding?
    Yes, but sell it and get a GTX 460 - almost double PPD
  5. If I do that can I use my other GPU for games?
    Yes, you can fold on one GPU while playing games on another.
  6. Can my PSU handle both of those cards without a crossfire?
    Yes
  7. Do cows think about computers?
    No, reproduction - like every other species.
  8. I'll probably get the Crysis 2 edition because it comes with Crysis and a t-shirt and its only 10 bucks more, is it worth it?
    Nope, Crysis 2 was a joke and card is same as all the rest
  9. The Crysis 2 edition is "Maxiumum" does that mean its faster?
    It's factory overclocked to 900MHz - easy to do with *any* GTX 560 Ti
  10. Will this GPU bottleneck my x4?
    No
  11. On a scale of 1-10 how safe is it to OC on the Asus Sabertooth 990fx?
    Safe is a relative term and is gauged by your knowledge
  12. Will a Bulldozer bottleneck my 560ti?
    No

lol yes

I never tried, but I heard the 5xxx series is great for mining bitcoins, which I hear now days is almost pointless. You can also sell it, which might be your best bet.

Quote:

Yes, but as the others stated it may not do as well.

Quote:

Yes

yes

Quote:

No

For 10 bucks more, if you like the way it looks more and would pay $10 for the shirt anyway, why not.

Quote:
The Crysis 2 edition is "Maxiumum" does that mean its faster?
It's factory overclocked by 50mhz, so technically yes. Though you can literally do that yourself in 3 seconds ... and chances are can go further.

Quote:
Will this GPU bottleneck my x4?
lol, no

Quote:

If you make a post like this with your questions before OC'ing, I'd say 10. Otherwise I'd say 9.99999999 assuming you don't do anything stupid.
