ATI RADEON X800 - Crossfire? x16 slot? Tags: Graphics Cards Radeon Crossfire ATI Graphics Last response: October 2, 2007 3:50 PM in Graphics & Displays Share TexasVol October 1, 2007 8:24:48 PM I just built a system mainly for video editing. So I bought an ebay video card: ATI RADEON X800 SE 128MB. I have been doing some overclocking, so I put the card in my lower PCIe slot, which only runs x4 so that it keeps the heat away from my CPU. Would I gain some advantage with this card by installing it in the x16 slot? Should I look at buying a second one cheap and set them up Crossfire? What advantages would this offer? (assuming the X800 even supports Crossfire) Thoughts? Quips? Rotten fruit and vegetables? More about : ati radeon x800 crossfire x16 slot cleeve October 1, 2007 9:14:15 PM Crossfire is for gaming. To use crossfire you need a crossfire-certified motherboard. Regardless, crossfire will offer you no advantage in the video-editing arena. For video editing, a 4x slot should work fine. TexasVol October 2, 2007 12:33:29 PM Allow me to add to clarifications: 1) I have an ASUS P5k Deluxe which supports Crossfire 2) I am doing some gaming, but dont want to spend a fortune to get top tier performance (at least not yet ) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer cleeve October 2, 2007 3:50:43 PM If you're doing light gaming, the X800 SE will be fine. If you want to step up, crossfiring X800's is not the answer. A single X1950 PRO for $125 will beat the living daylights out of two X800 SE's in crossfire. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
