post #671 of 3943
hi,
i forgot to tell you that i have upgraded to an 5 eye-infinity with a 5870 eye6,

5 dell 1909wb

proof.gif
sorry it was taken with a phone cam


i am looking at upgrading to xfire, would adding a normal 5870 be ok,
as i have 2gb of vid ram on this card now,
should i add a 5970?

the question,
would 2gb of vid ram, vs 4gb affect performance? if so by how much?

In response to your question, crossfire does not add the ram. It only adds the second GPU. But also if you had the option to have 4gb on one card, by all means it would be better.

bare in mind that you will need anouther e6 to crossfire it corssfire and SLI both only give you the minimum amount of vram off the 2 cards, (why I dont know seeing as it will only use the ram off one card wouldnt it be more sesnible to limit to the top/highest card)

So if you put a 1gb 5870 in with your 2gb e6 it will at best only give you access to 1gb of vram.

Yes and no at extreamly high res and high AF/AA settings extra Vram makes a signifcant difference but if your not capping out your current vram then it makes no difference.

thanks, but that is not what i was hoping for.
my res of 5000*1440 + 1024*768 , would need more than 1gb i think,
then i will be going for trifire with a 5970 or 5890(when it comes out), thanks, i was about to buy a 5870

will never be a 5890 mate, seeing as they are onto 6 series cards now. you already have a 2gb 5870 right? so if you get a 2nd eye6 card then you will be fine.

Not sure how a 5970 will scale as its technically a duel gpu card, does it have 2gb of memory available or 1 gb per core?

I will probably update the next couple of hundred posts later tonight. Being busy is a very rare occurance for me but I'm currently busy for the next couple of days. I'll be completely free on tuesday. Most likely everything will be updated on wednesday.

PS: Please no need to repost your pics. I have to scroll through the whole thread anyways, so I don't benefit from reposted pics in any way whatsoever.

But yah. I will update the OP further tonight. Will probably get to at least post #500


EDIT: The OP is updated to include setups within the first 451 posts now.
