Couple XFire Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can I crossfire the 1gb Sapphire 6950 with the 2gb version?

I have the 2gb version already but I never realized the 1gb is 20 bucks cheaper and I use 1 monitor so I really dont need all those gb.

Also, do most every new game to come out support crossfire? If not, which prominent recent games dont?

You most certainly can.....heres the kicker though. It will basically make both cards 1gb cards as crossfire mirrors memory contents on both cards it doesn't pool them into 3gb. I had the exact same thought when setting up my system but realized really quickly after some research that it's not a good idea (especially since I have an eyefinity setup that needs that 2gb).
