Im currently running
E8400 @ 3ghz
2gb ddr2 kingston hyper x downclocked to 800mhz
22in 1050 1680 screen
i now have a bit of spare cash and was looking for too upgrade, Im considering getting a 4870 too run in crossfire.
Will this bottleneck on limited pci e lanes on the p5kc. will i see a definate improvement in fps? and would the money be better spent upgrading some other components which would allow fps too improve better.
I have never thought of that. What would cause this? Would it not be inbetween crossfiring 2 4850s and 2 4870s? 4870s really seem to be in a price sweet spot at the moment which is why i was taking interest in that over 2 4850s. I live in New Zealand by the way where a 4870 is about NZ$20 (about US$15) more than a 4850 which seems to make buying a 4850 pointless.
