What about the other spec? | Report abuse blaze15301 January 22, 2010 8:20:15 PM no i dont have the 4850 x 2 i was thinking about gettign it but i herd the drivers and stuff were bad so im nto sure | Report abuse EXT64 Motherboard Expert January 22, 2010 8:22:45 PM I wouldn't recommend it even if it is possible. If you need more speed, I'd suggeest looking at the 5800 series as the next upgrade (or GTX3xx if/when it comes out). | Report abuse wa1 Motherboard Expert January 22, 2010 11:29:49 PM ^+1 yup, the new 5xxx series are more efficient, less heat, less power consumption and dx.11 ability, so if u want to upgrade then 5xxx series are better choice... | Report abuse jyjjy Motherboard Expert January 22, 2010 11:45:18 PM Yeah, you don't want to add an HD4850x2 to an HD4870. The two options you should be considering are adding another HD4870 or Ebaying the one you have and going for an HD5850. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>4870 and a 4850> Related ressources: ForumUsed: 4870 or 4850 ForumCrossFireX ( 4870+4850 ) 2nd card has 32-bit memory interface??
