Future Crossfire config

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Motherboard: PCI Express 2.0 X16 and X4.

GPU: 6850 1GB

Should I get another one and crossfire or should I get a 7850 and sell the 6850?

I am not looking for much more, maybe around 1.3-1.5 times better performance so I can max Skyrim and at least play Planetside 2.

I always go for a single high powered GPU rather than crossfire unless you need more than a single high powered card can offer.

no, if you've done a cfx setup with that mobo, your cards will both run at x4
better get a mobo that have dual pcie 3 x 16 or 1 pcie 3 x 16 with pci3 x8, then you only start planning on cfx
