Should I upgrade??? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Here is an idea... You could pick up a mobo that supports x-fire, and the another 2900xt. Then you'd smoke a single 8800 series card, lol.

I don't know, I can play Crysis on High settings with no AA @ 1280x1024. But I think a 2900XT with any proc or ram running Crysis on VH at playable framerates is a stretch. To me playable is over 30 FPS.

But I would like to know how you got your Pro clocked as high as you do. I can only get mine card up to 830 and thats with 56% fan.
