Crossfire worth it? And hows the stuttering on a pair of 7950?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I may be able to get a second 7950 for a decent price, but I'm wondering if anyone else has a pair of them, can tell me how good it is?

Also, how is the microsttutter if any?



One thing, I have the gigabyte 7950 windforce, but it;'s the voltage locked 1Ghz edition. If I get another one of the same brand and money, but it's the 900mhz non-voltage locked edition, will it still be ok?

If you get the 900Mhz version, the 1Ghz edition card will be downclocked to match the other, unless you overclock.

EDIT: DirectX 10/11 is microstutter free AFAIK, but you may still see some microstutter in DirectX 9 games.
