Need a little help deciding what direction to go.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I have a couple questions about my setup and how to best utilize it. I have the following:

965 @ 3.8 Stable
MSI 870A-G54
Corsair XMS 4gb of Ram @ 1600 7-7-7-21
OCZ 650 PSU
Multi SSD and HDD

I also have an MSI 460 cyclone 1gb capable of 900/1800/2200 stable. Core might go higher with a voltage bump.

AND I inherited a set of Sapphire 6850 1gb cards that seem to be happy at 930/1025

My mobo can only crossfire at 16x/4x. Will the crossfired 6850's outshine the 460 despite this?

a 6850 is faster then a 460 so yeah 2 will run faster because even 1 will run faster smile.gif

well at the clock speeds listed they should still be around the same performance but adding a second card will give you a boost so the crossfired 6850s will be faster even with a 4x pcie smile.gif
