Hello, I am looking for a card to put into crossfire. I'm on a budget and can only really spend $100 on both cards combined. Any suggestions?

For 100$ combined you can't get two cards for crossfire.

I mean, you can, but they will be very low end cards that probably were never meant to be crossfired.

Take your 100 bucks and buy a 4770, or a 4850 (or whatever Nvidia equivalent there is) and enjoy knowing that those cards all beat whatever crossfire setup you could muster with 100 bucks.


I would say that the cheapest card that you should crossfire with is a 4770 with another 4770, other than that a single card is your best option by far.

What about the rest of your system?
PSU?
agree, with $100, u better buy a single powerful card, more efficient, less heat...

That puts you at two 4650's but a 9800GTX or 4830 would probably outperform them.
