Can I Crossfire This?

Hello,

I have recently purchased a new graphics card which is the 750ti and it is on its way. I currently have the nvidia evga 620 and was wondering if I could maybe still use the 620 when i get the 750ti. I have no knowledge in crossfireing but would love to start learning more about it. So will it work in my system or what do i need?

    So is that a no? So my proccessor has to support crossfire? I thought it was just the graphics cards who had to.
  2. The GPUs need to be the same model, so the answer is no.

    No, they are not only two different chips, they are from different generations (the 750ti is Maxwell and the 620 is Kepler). Also, it is not called crossfire with Nvidia GPUs, it is called SLI. Basically, use the 750ti and sell the 620 - it is now literally useless in your PC unless you wanted to use it for a dedicated physx card or something odd like that. In fact, I don't think you can even SLI either of those cards even if you had identical versions of them since neither of them support SLI in the first place. The minimum 600 series GPU for SLI is the 650ti boost and the minumum 700 series I believe is the 760 (also Kepler).
