which one is better to choose

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
want to know do i should buy 1 more 6970 and but them to crossfire or just buy way more better 1 high end gpu
i wanna play bf 4 with ultra high and even bit moving space so fps should be high so it doesn't get any where under 30+fps


pc equipment:

Fractal desing defile r4 case (7 fans atm)
Sabertooth 990fx r1 motherboard
AMD fx-8350 with kraken x60 closed water cooler (oced 5ghz stabile with silent setup)
radeon club3d 6970 gpu (non oced)
600w power
2gb ddr3 sdram pc3-12800 ocz ocz3x16002g (4x2gb =8gb) timers : 5-5-5-16
Corsair force 3 SSD 60gb (windows, linux dualboot SSD)
Kingston Technology SSD V300 120GB (games SSD)

so my question is what you recommend to me to do just buy another radeon 6970 and put them to crossfire
or do i should buy 1 newer high end Gpu and put that on my pc??

i'm not the best choose which one is better to put 2 same and maybe bit lower or 1 high end Gpu..

Thanks for helping

if your looking for an upgrade a 7950 would be a ton better then the 6970. the thing is you don't mention what brand of power supply you have. I believe a 6970 is almost a 200 watt card and that chip overclocked is probably closer to 200 watt as well. add in all the fans and cup cooler and your draw on that power supply is probably over 450 for sure. adding a second 6970 to crossfire is not recommended

if i would change the power suply aswell it will be more powerful to put 2 6970 or just still go to 1 7950?

a single HD 7950 kills the HD 6970 in modern games like BF4. even with CF, HD 6970 does not stand a chance. remember HD 7950 at 1100 mhz matches HD 7970 Ghz perfomance. thats an average OC for the HD 7950 boost (925 mhz)
