I'm looking to get a Crossfire mobo/system. I thought I had everything figured out as far as upgrades are concerned.
What I know: Unlike SLI which can only use the exact same vidcard, Crossfire can use different ATI cards. How far does this flexibility go? Will an X850 XT Crossfire vidcard work with a X1900 XT? Is it limited to their own generations? Like only X800 models can couple and only X1x00 models can couple.
Shed some guru light please!
I hate having to upgrade vidcards everytime a new generation of eye candy slurping, licking games come out. Right now I am not so impressed by the new X1x00 line. I'm simply worried that the new games of 2006 or early 2007 will make me upgrade my videocard again just so I can play at 1280x1024 med-max settings. That's why I chose Crossfire so when I use a X1900 XT now I can get whatever is the latest ATI vidcard in mid-late 2006 and couple them.
