can my system handle a 4890 crossfire set...? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
The crossfire down clocking the 4890 to a 4870 will be ok if you decide to crossfire, though most games will be mediocre at best from my experience. I loved my 4870 xfire set up dont get me wrong tongue.gif its good but clearly shows its age now. In some games it had very little effect as well. The single 4890 which I have never owned would be an excellent free? Upgrade, bringing a boost to you but nothing just ground breaking. So either choice is doable and would give you an improvement, I would say try the crossfire first then non, and take your favorite....befitting either way.

If you are not in a hurry then wait for the Seasonic M12 II Bronze Evo Edition

Will be priced around the same area and it will be better then the TX750

As well as fully modular if you care about that

Thread Starter 
i stuck with my old 750w corsair PSU its working fine and decided to use single 4890 and gave away the 4870 to my grandfather ( he likes/started playing half life 2 lolz )


I am scared now my computer fans would not work i got lazy and just ran water in the sink XD. Ill let it dry and hopefully it did not get damaged. ( my cousin gave me a thermaltake Kandalf case for free also which is huge upgrade from my 8 year old lian li mid atc case. )


thank you all for information i appreciate it. And shame for the dibs on gpu, to be honest the gpu was in the brink of death anyways ( i cooked it like 5 times in oven )
