My 1st question is: From what I've heard adding another graphics card won't double your space. Is this true? If I get a 2GB Card then Crossfire it with the same exact 2GB card I should have 4Gb of Dedicated Video Ram to meet certain game requirements right?
My 2nd question is: I plan on putting just 1 graphics Card in my build, later on I'll probably add a 2nd one via crossfire. So can I put my Single Graphics Card in a PCI x4_1 slot then later put the other one is the PCI x4_2 slot? or should I put the single in the X16_1 until I get the other one, then put the 2nd one in the PCI x4_3. I just need to have room for my Wi-Fi card PCI (it is the smallest PCI slot) >Motherboard I plan on getting<Manufacturer's Page
Thanks for the answers. Really good to know that the vram doesn't add up. I was planning on getting (2)2gb cards to meet the 3gb requirements for new games. After I went back and looked at the card I realized the card(s) wouldn't block the Mini PCI port for my wireless card even if I got 2. Also thanks for info on crossfire/SLI I'll probably just aim for a decent 3gb card.
