6950 1gig xfire with 6950 2gig?

So can you use crossfire with the 2 cards? Exact same cards just 1 gig and a 2 gig please help

Should work, but I wouldn't.
Will only be able to use 1 GB out of the 2 GB card, and since data is mirrored between cards, you'll really only end up with 1 GB effective VRAM. 1080p with AA and you'll be wishing for more VRAM.

No no, forget 1gb, go 2gb. And brand does not matter, only thing I could add is get a reference card with the fan towards the back of the card.

Would probably sell your 1 GB if wanted more performance to be honest..

Ya i only have the 1 gig card and i want another so i'm trying to figure out what to get. So get a 2gig now would be useless but getting another 1 gig but different brand would be good?

Sorry im not to smart with this stuff
