Dear All,

I am having a GTX 295 graphics card & i am unable to play crysis 3. Its quite ovious because my card supports DX 10.1, but i also have a seperate pc loaded with a Zotac GT 520- 2GB.
My board is Asus RAMPAGE II GENE with Core i7 Extreme Edition 990X(3.46G,L2:6x256KB,L3:12M,rev.B1,130W) which supports both SLI & Crossfire X. Now can i crossfire Gtx 295 with GT 520 only for getting the Direct X 11 support...??
I bought the game with all my savings, but I don't have that much money to Buy a new rig.

Please reply as i am very much eager to play crysis 3. :( 

Regards
Azvi

i got your point, but what i need to know that like improving Physx , can i modify the Direct X . I want the support of DX11 only from
GT 520. rest my GTX 295 can handle.....

So please suggest whether to use or not... as i dont want to damage my rig or the card itself.

Thanks

Best solution

Hi Azvi,

Unfortunately you can't SLI those two graphics cards together to get better performance. You ideally need 2 of the same graphics card to use SLI.

You could however use your GT 520 as a physix card through the nVidia control panel. That might wield a performance improvement, but not a lot!

Your rig spec is brilliant, the only thing letter you down is your graphics card. Change it to a GTX 660Ti and Crysis 3 will run fine!

first, xfire is for amd, so it's SLI for you.

second, im not an expert but you cannot SLI a fast card with a SLOW one. For amd i know they can xfire cards that are similar in performance though.
what i know is you can use 2 nvidia cards, but the other one will be used as a physx card, but not as SLI config like 2x295.

my advice, save up if you want to. or sell that card and get a newer generation (just add more cash)

Thanks for the advise , but i do not want to SLI those cards.. i want to utilize only the Direct X 11 of GT 520 . Just like we generally do to get the Physx from another card.

Thanks ... reply soon.
