hey i was wondering if crossfire/SLI if better than just upgrading a single graphic card. i currently have the 4870 512mb (my motherboard does not support crossfire or sli )
would you guys recommend getting a new motherboard and then crossfiring? or should i just stay with my current motherboard and save up for a really good graphic card not yet released. im sure my power supply can handle any single card that will come out :P
Asus M4A78 Pro Phenom2 940 OCZ Reaper 4gb 1066mhz ram Corsair Tx750w Powercolor 4870 512mb
I would upgrade to a Crossfire motherboard, and run 2 4870 X2's in quad Crossfire. Yep, that is exactly what I would do if I were you.
oh yeah. and i play at 1680x1050 for games id have to say... starcraft 2 when its out, counter strike source, and this new game um the last remnant
HD 4870 is enough for that res,do u have any problems with it ?
I have *G.Skill 4gb ddr2 800 @954mhz *Vista 64bit *Intel Core2Quad q6600 @ 3.6ghz *Antec TwelveHundred full tower case *Silverstone 700w modular striker series *ZEROtherm Nirvana cpu cooler *Power Color Ati 4870 1gb ddr5 edition (800core/1090memory) *ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner *Seagate Barracuda 500gb HD (2x) *P45 ASUS P5Q SE *Acer 22"
I'm waiting for a 5xxx or 3xxx ati/nvidia cards to come out.
haha yes my graphic card runs pretty good right now but im just wonderin if i "HAD" to upgrade what it would be
Upgrade something when u really dont get the performance u need from it. For now HD 4870 is pretty good and u are happy with it too,when it started to struglle in games or other things that u need,then that would be a good time for upgrading
Your right, i think il just wait till i really Need an upgrade =D
