hey guys i built my own pc that includes:
FX 8350
8GB RAM
XFX 7870
700W Rosewill Stallion psu
I was just wondering if it is worth it to stick another 7870 in there, i checked and all my parts are compatible for crossfire. I did hear that there are problems with microstuttering and other things, but me just being the average gamer that just wants to get extra fps and graphical detail into my game was just wondering if it is worth the extra upgrade. Any responses are greatly appreciated.

what motherboard do you have? if it's a 970 chipset, yes it does crossfire but very poorly because it only runs at 16x/4x in crossfire. 99fx gets you 8x/8x which is fine for crossfire those cards, or 990fx gets you 16x/16x full lanes.

I wouldn't with a 970. 16x/4x crossfire isn't the best. your choice, google it, see other peoples experience.

16x/4x is okay on mid range cards
