so searching the 540 something pages of this thread is kinda hard (I did try but didn't find what i wanted to know) so I got a question for all you owners...

I'm new to overclocking but I will for sure try it in the future, should I go with 1600 rated ram or 1333 with this board? Is it easy to get the ram to 1600? The computer I want to build is my sig (besides the GPU, the x1800 xt is what I have now and don't have the greenbacks yet for my 5870 so I'd rather get my rig up and running before worrying about the gpu.)

I might be over thinking memory but it seems like each day I pick out a new one. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Go with the 1600! prices are about the same between 1333 and 1600 with the same timings.

Unless, one can find a Higher Frequency kit for the Same price or less... BY some work of God!

Hiya everybody

I could really use some help with crossfire on my GD70 so if some of you could drop by my thread that would be swell

Are you sure it has to be done that way to get x16/x16 going?

I choose to install both of the cards + bridges

Run driver sweeper

Install the latest x64 full catalyst suite

I guess i will give that post a try later on today...i need to pull the rig apart and put an antec spot cool in between the cards anyways

Just a pointer,you do realise that the 4890 will scale down to the speed of the 4870,it's a bit like having a HDD sharing the same channel as an optical drive,it will default to the slowest drive on the channel.

Yes i thoroughly researched the setup before i decided to run it...a lot of useful research/results/reviews out on the net for this kind of setup and how the 4890 will interact with the 4870

I was originally aiming to pickup a 4850 1GB or 4870 1GB for my setup but i was lucky enough to score this lovely little 4890 for the low low price of free

I have two rigs so when i have someone over i can throw the 4870 in my spare rig and have the 4890 in my main rig...when im running solo i can run crossfire

Before the 4890 i was running a 9800GT in my spare rig and a 4870 in my main rig....with this setup my secondary gets a nice boost and so does my primary

Ok,if you give my "correct way to set up xfire"a go,see if this works for you,no guarantees though,lol!!

If you look in CCC,"information centre",graphics hardware,look for the "linked adapter",this will show you the speed the secondary card is running at,you probably know this anyway.
