qx6700 radeon 5870 600w seasonic psu 4gb ddr3 corsair foxconn black ops mobo 24 inch samsung 1900 x 1200
hi, i was thinking of upgrading my current set up to x fire but as i currently own an x48 mobo i was concerned it would hamper performance vs x58 chipset, pci bandwidth etc. would it be worthwhile from a gaming perspective upgrading processor and possibly psu(already have a x58 mobo bought it cheap on ebay,fingers crossed) for the x fire difference on the 2 chipsets
More about5870 xfire performance
Hello and welcome to the forums Since both chipsets support CF @ dual 16x then the performance is pretty much the same.
hi thx for the reply,i just thought i read somewhere that xfire scaled better on the x58 chipset . thx do you know where i could get some benchies or reviews from
