Asus board for crossfire hd 5770 Tags: Motherboards Asus Performance Crossfire Last response: March 4, 2010 5:51 AM in Motherboards Share pondfisher February 17, 2010 4:54:47 AM I am looking at the following board: Asus P7P55D $170 before combo rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... How does the following affect crossfire performance: 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16 or dual at x8/x8 mode) 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (at x4 mode, 2.5GT/s) Ive read a few discussions that claim that x8/x8 with a lowish end card (5770) will not give you a good increase in performance. Im interested in crossfiring two 5770's down the road but not sure about this mobo..... Thanks, More about : asus board crossfire 5770 pondfisher February 17, 2010 5:25:55 AM ohhh i see....disregard. I found the answer in the Graphics Card sli/crossfire FAQ. Looks like x 8 should perform well. Glad i ditched the X4mobo abhishekk89 February 19, 2010 9:00:07 AM i'd suggest u get the 5850 instead of 5770 crossfire... cheaper and performs faster Related resources Crossfire Asus 5770 - Forum CrossFire Support Needed for HD5770 ? - Forum Can't Enable Crossfire HD 5770 's - Forum HD5770 crossfire psu help - Forum 2 HD 5770 in crossfire issue - Forum Can't find your answer ?
