Hi, i have just ordered 2 radeon 5770 that i was thinking of running in crossfire. Right now i have a Gigabyte p35-dq6 M.B, that only runs 16x - 4x, so i was looking for one that runs 16x - 16x. What is my options here? Can i run 8x - 8x, or is 16x-16x
the best or what? Have also been thinking on x58 chipset M.B, but if there is a p55 chipset that works better for me, i would rather take that one. I mostley use my pc for gaming, and hd gaming.
Thank`s for all your help
My current system is:
4 GB ram
22" samsung full HD
8800 gts 320 (old verson)
Hi again. Thank you both for helping me so far.
I wasen`t thinking of using to mutch money, and i can`t wrap my head around what to choose between p55 or x58.
will i gain most from, 2x * 2.0 16x cf, or 2 * 8x?
if i was going for a x58 system, i was thinking of i920, with 6GB ram, because it is the cheepest
With PCIe 2.0, 8x or 16x doesn't matter. Most tests are performed using P55 motherboards. An X58 solution can be significantly more expensive that a P55 solution with basically no performance gains, if any. Did you read reviews to determine your requirements? What's your budget?
