I want to play Crysis 2 max on 1920x1080 monitor. I know in order from least to greatest but I'm not sure whether its worth spending from $200 for the 6870 to get a 6950 for $220 or whether it would have an effect now or in the future to get 2gb for $245.
Thanks and if there's a better option I'm all ears. I will be crossfiring next year or later so keep that in mind.
Sorry. I didn't say that correctly. I meant crossfire?
you mean you want to run 2 6950's in crossfire ?
Measured power consumption R6950 1GB
System in IDLE = 178W System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 312W Difference (GPU load) = 134 W Add average IDLE wattage ~ 20W Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 154 Watts
It might work.. i ran antec and it said u only need 550 watts, but the chart i found said 1 card uses over 300 under load, using that info id recommended like 1000 plus
Yessir, I checked on that website. It says 642w for 6950 crossfire vs 815w for 6970 crossfire. But if I unlock a 6950 to a 6970 it would still require less watts right? Thus 750w should be enough. If not I'll probably get the 850w
if i was gonna run 2 unlocked 6950's with 3 case fans my water and 2 cd drives etc id get like a 1200 watt 80 plus but whatever works for you is cool
