AM buying a new rig after 3 year.

New MOBO: MSI Z87-G45 GAMING

Can i crossfire my clud3d 6850 with my new sapphire 270x (500watt)?

My PSU is an high current 620 watt.

Do i gain anything from it? CPU is and Core i5 I5-4670 or Core i5 I5-3350P

No you cant. You can only crossfire 6850 with a 6800 series graphics card. That is 6850 or 6870.

U sure i think i read a year ago that you could crossfire old ones with new ones. Is the 6850 chipset not the same as the r270?

6850 is an old generation 40nm Barts architecture where as 270X 28nm Curacao XT architecture and you cant crossfire them. You can crossfire from same generation and same series cards like 6850 can be crossfired with 6870 and 6850, 6950 can be crossfired with 6950 and 6970, 7850 with 7850 and 7870 and so on. But you cant crossfire a different generation, series card . Hope you got it
