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

  1. yeah but the 3850 would choke the 5770 badly
  2. 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
  3. oooohh

    sorry

    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:

  5. well google helps
  6. I am with bluescreen, never heard of 3850 and 5770 being able to crossfire with each other.
  7. I've decided that I'm going to go with another 5770.

    Thanks for the answer guys.
  8. 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?
  9. 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:
