Crossfire 77701gb and 77702gb

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to crossfire my current Hd7770, and I was wondering if I would see any benefits from crossfiring it with a 2gb version of the same card, or if I would run into any problems? Not looking to buy a better single card solution. Thanks.

IIRC the 2 GB versions only have GDDR3 and take a significant performance hit. You'd also have it limited to the 1 GB of the first card as usable capacity in crossfire. It'd be much better to get a matching 1 GB GDDR5 card to go with it.
