GTX 660 twinfrost III and GTX570 in crossfire ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can I crossfire these two cards? my brother just got a brand new 660 TF III from manufacturer in replacement for his busted 570.. we had the exact same 570's mine is still going strong his obviously not

He has already upgraded because he wasnt quite sure what MSI was going to come back with.. I was hoping for another 570 so I can crossfire them... seeing how I was gonna get the card tongue.gif

But they sent this 660 .. so can I still crossfire them?

unsure of what to do at this point

First of all, its SLI for nvidia cards, crossfire is for amd cards.
Also you cant sli different cards from nvidia. you have to have the exact same card.

Youre right.. sell them both and buy a gtx770

wondering if a 780 is worth the extra $$$ over 770

Yes, the 780 is great, but if you can step up that much cash, I'd go with R9 290 once non reference coolers come out smile.gif The best card that you can afford would be the best option, except for the overpriced cards such as 780 Ti.
