6xxx CF owners , see an improvement in gameplay/fps?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am running eyefinity plus additional monitors.

Games I play most: CSS, L4D2, GRID, NFS Hot Pursuit, SF4, SC2 etc.

I do notice slow downs in SC2 and rarely see any hiccups in NFS HP

but I want to add more AA and other eye candy...

was adding a 2nd card noticeable? I came from a 5850 and I didn't CF them b/c of all headaches I've read other users experienced and coming from a 5970 before that, I had my own share of headaches

in case you don't see my sig, I run 3600x1600 eyefinity and a 2560x1600 in games (not @ the same time =P)

It will be worth it, I highly suggest it. You cant go wrong with how well these cards scale.

CrossfireX is helping me push games with my eyefinity resolution (I use high settings in my games). Yes the graphics are definitely pushed / scaled nicely. I have two 6970s.

While reading a lot of the headaches that come with XFire/Drivers its mostly always PEBKAC imho. If you feel like your 6970 isn't cutting it grab another one to your rig, considering that they scale amazingly well I think its a great decision.
