If not could you have a 5870 and a 5970 in crossfire. What would be the power consumpition, and what motherboard would be good for this setup? More about : ati 5970 5850 crossfire jonpaul37 March 4, 2010 12:11:39 PM yes, it can be done, the only problem is that the higher performance card will throttle down to be on par with the lowest performance card you have, so essentially you would have a 5850x2 + 5850. An example would be as follows: 4870 + 4850 crossfire = 2 x 4850 m 0 l saaiello March 4, 2010 12:14:09 PM Depending on your motherboard putting a 5970 with a 5850 might severly hurt the performance for the card and creat alot more heat then needed a single 5970 should run anything you can throw at it with setting maxed out on high res no problem. m 0 l Related resources Can i crossfire Ati hd5970 + hd5850 Sapphire Extreme ? - Forum Single Ati 5970 vs. 5850 Crossfire? - Forum Ati 5850 crossfire with ati 5970 - Forum Can i crossfire my ati 5770 with possibly the 5850,5870,or 5970 - Forum X2 5850 CROSSFIRE ADD A 5970 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
