Hello all. I have a quick question. I Was wondering if I could run an ATI 3850 and 5770 in Crossfire.

That's what I figured. I recently bought major upgrades (mobo,cpu,gpu) and was wondering if I should hold onto it or maybe sell it and buy another 5770

Huh O_o

Crossfire only works when you have two cards that are the same generation and model. Hybrid crossfire only works when you have two cards that are the same generation.

A 3850 can't even hybrid crossfire with a 4850, what makes you think they'll crossfire with a 5770? :heink:

I am with bluescreen, never heard of 3850 and 5770 being able to crossfire with each other.

I've decided that I'm going to go with another 5770.

Thanks for the answer guys.

I was just thinking, I know I'm bringing my own thread back from the dead. I was thinking, would there be any point in my even plugging in the 3850 but NOT doing crossfire? Would I benefit from this at all?

Only if you're running multiple monitors.

So for the language but HEEEEELLL NOOOOO :na: 
3850 would choke and kill the life in the 5770.
I would sell the card for about $60.00 dollars switch is now retail for.
Don't think about it or I would come over there and break that 3850 (if you try it) :pt1cable:
