U have currently a slightly dated 'gaming class' card - the thought of buying another and forking out for an expensive motherboard and have no guarantee that you will even see performance gain if your games are not optimised for SLI/CF makes it an even more dodgy move hehe So how about a 'warp speed' move from the world of dual cores to quads with a DX11 GPU to boot?
Edit : here is a juicy combo that even features crossfire if u just have to go multi GPU @@
I don't know when/where you got that PSU, but it's a potential problem. About the time dell started doing BTX they changed the pinout of the standard PSU and left the actual plug the same. This means if you mix it with a standard you could fry both PSU and mobo.
I am making the assumption that its one of these, but I think its worth saying.
i think im going to get a better graphics card and just go with the single x16 instead of 2 of em for crossfiring in the future (seing as how they mainly are 2 x PCI-E x16 2.0 Slot (CFX x8)....if they each run at half its pointless as hell.
edit: lol nvm, after more googling. i realize that 2 x PCI-E x16 2.0 Slot (CFX x8) gets about 4fps less than 2 x PCI-E x16 2.0 Slot (CFX x16), which is nearly nothing lol
Actually if one ran 8x + 8x on PCIex16 gen 1.0 then yes the performance hit is great - from the benches i've seen if on PCIex16 gen 2.0 there is little if any difference. But ya i support a single GPU solution in any case hehe
