A 1000w PSU is not necessary a good 650w would be great for any crossfire or SLI single card combination. m 0 l dualnos March 8, 2010 2:59:35 AM paperfox said:Yes you can crossfire cards of different manufacturers.

Ask ! Get the answer dualnos March 8, 2010 3:02:04 AM THANKS S FOR THE REPLY BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SIZE ONE IS 512MB AND THE OTHER IS 1 GIG. AND ACTUALLY THE POWER SUPPLY IM GETTING AS A GIFT FROM MY BROTHER SO MIGHT AS WELL TAKE IT FOR NOW m 0 l Best solution paperfox March 8, 2010 3:05:59 AM The 1GB card will only use 512MB as the other card is limiting it. Since the second card you are buying is the 1GB card I suggest you save some money and get the 512MB version. Other than that its nothing to be worried about. Share microterf March 8, 2010 3:07:54 AM Paperfox, I think he's getting the card used, doesn't sound like he can get a 512 MB version. Either way, Paperfox is right, will only use 512 MB from each card, but will definetly work. m 0 l dualnos March 8, 2010 3:59:55 AM WELL YEAH ACTUALLY THE SAPPHIRE 4870 WILL BE SLIGHTY A USED CARD... BUT NOW I KNOW I WILL NOT HAVE NO PROBS THANKS FOR THE RESPONSES.. ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW???? m 0 l microterf March 8, 2010 4:07:03 AM Nothing really. Should work fine, just plug them in, hook up the Crossfire ribbon, boot up, go to CCC and CrossfireX, enable it, and you should be fine. m 0 l dualnos March 8, 2010 9:16:58 AM Best answer selected by dualnos. m 0 l matt314 March 8, 2010 3:12:39 PM Get a new keyboard too since your capslock key is broken. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
