asus p8z77-v lx crossfire

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have tried searching online but still am uncertain to my following question. Is it worth adding a second 6950 in xfire on this motherboard when it has one 16x and one 4x? I'm upgrading my psu next so I want to know so I know how many watts too buy.

Afternoon mate,

Ok so, simple answer is a big fat no, don't bother getting a second one for xfire. With the cost of the 7970 editions at the moment you would probably be better off either getting one of them or wait for the R9-280x to come out which will be around €300 which should pretty much obliterate any 6950 xfire setup.

You will be roughly the same level as a 7970ghz on it's own which isn't worth it. Just get the single GPU and then you won't have to worry about screen tearing or micro stutters etc etc

Comps

P.S you can run 2 x 7970's on an 800w PSU give or take with your setup.
