Solved Crossfire...Is it possible? Tags: Homebuilt Radeon Graphics Cards Crossfire ATI Systems Product Last response: June 24, 2010 11:38 PM in Systems Share JDSalin January 14, 2010 5:34:24 PM Okay so last year around November I built my computer. My graphics card is HIS ATI radeon 4890. I would like to crossfire with a HIS ATI Radeon 5850. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Is this possible? Do both cards have to be the same? More about : crossfire JDSalin January 14, 2010 5:44:02 PM Okay I just checked the HIS site and I see the 5970. Same question as above but this card instead.

It would probably be worth more to just replace the single card with one of the 5xxx series.

JDSalin January 14, 2010 6:06:50 PM I just checked on Newegg and the 4890 isn't even in stock anymore so I wouldn't even be able to do that. shortstuff_mt a b B Homebuilt system a b U Graphics card January 14, 2010 6:23:02 PM There are two 4890's currently listed on newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... obsidian86 a b B Homebuilt system a b U Graphics card January 14, 2010 7:08:03 PM both cards has to be similar and relatively close in performance like 4890 with 4870/4870x2/4890 JDSalin June 24, 2010 11:38:18 PM Best answer selected by JdSalin.
