Hi I have recently purchased a Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H Motherboard and I comes with ATI 4200 onboard with Hybrid CrossfireX. I plan to buy an ATI Radeon 5770 and would like to know a few things.
If I buy the 5770 and install it and enable the Hybrid CrossfireX support to crossfire my onbaord and the card, I am told that I will use the onbaord graphics' rear panel connections for the monitor. Is that the case?
If that is the case will I have the directx 11 support from the 5770 (and all other features) or the directx 10.1 support from the onboard? Basically will the 4200 onboard use the 5770 as a boost or vice versa.
And finally with the both of them running together, would they match up to the 4890 or perhaps the 5850?
Hello and welcome to the forums
First of all i don't recommend using Hybrid CrossFireX if you are going to game because HybridCF is mainly for power saving and won't give you a noticeable boost in gaming,so CrossFiring a HD 5770 and the integrated HD 4200 isn't a good idea.
So if you want to CrossFire,then buy another HD 5770 and if you can't then use a single HD 5770.
