What would happen if i got these 2 cards and did crossfire x?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at upgrading my pc for better gaming and i came across this.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131381

What would happen if i got them and put em in crossfire x? Would they equal a higher model card? i don't have the $200 to spend for a nice 5830.

would these be good for semi good gaming and video editing?

What would be the combined specs?

I'm learning so please be patient

The 4830 is actually quite a nice little card (similar performance to a 9800GT), and scales in crossfire quite well. My guess is that at lower resolutions, 2 would easily compete w/a single 5830, but as resolution/AA levels went up it would fall behind as you would still only have 512MB of (effective) vram capacity.

Luckily for you a 5830 isn't $200...
Even 5850's are like $170 now at the egg..

I believe there are better cards you can buy for the $130.
