HD 6850 for two 1080p monitor setup, UPGRADE??
I currently have one 1080p monitor with an XFX HD6850 and just bought another 1080p monitor. I will only be using one for gaming and the other for videos and other things simultaneously. My question is will my game performance suffer a bit from the two monitor set up, and should I upgrade?
DarkSable said:You take a barely noticeable hit from running two monitors at once off your graphics card, but note that running a video and gaming at once might be taxing on your CPU, depending on how powerful it is and what game you're playing.
This is what I am currently running:
Z77 Sabertooth 1155 motherboard
Corsair H80 Watercooling
XFX 6850 (double dissipation edition)
4 x 4gb (16gb) Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz RAM
120 Kingston HyperX SSD SATA III
500gb 7200rpm Hard drive
Corsair 850 watt Gold certified psu

Thank you DarkSable and Gam3r01, I feel much better about sticking with my hd6850 for now... Im probably going to try to see if I can make some money off of it anyways on amazon or something cause I would like a newer gpu, but if it doesnt sell ill just stick with it, since it runs really well in most games.
