4850 xfire, but motherboard has crossfire support - Bridge Needed?
Nov 11, 2009, 4:04 PM
I have this card (HIS 4850):
and have this mobo (GA-EP45-UD3P):
Somewhere I read that the 4000 series do not need the bridge with a mobo that supports xfire. I am going to get this card (another HIS 4850):
So, would i need the bridge or not? If so, they bundle a bridge with the iceQ model, and I would just order that one (about same price with shipping).
Also, using a Q9550, would all this with a 600W power supply be ok?
If the power supply is 80+ certified (dont know if that makes a difference).
Answers greatly appreceiated.
