my current Hardware is i3 530, Gigabyte H55 S2H, 2GB ddr3, 500GH WD HDD.
and my old carid is Gigabyte 4650OC 1GB ddr2.
my current mobo support CF in 16x + 4x mode.
1. is it possible for me to do cross fire between these cards?
2. my current 4650 card don't have CF bridge (so do my coming 5670 card), so it's possible without the bridge?
3. if possible, can i get performance boost with this crossfire over just one 5670?
or a better idea would be to sell the 4650 and get a 4870 cheap with a non reference cooler since a used 4870 is about the same price as a 5670, and much faster, slightly quicker than a 5770, and with the non reference cooler it would be cool, the sapphire ones are probably the best to look at.
As long as you have the PSU to support the 4870 and you aren't looking for DX11 support, it too is a good option and will definitely outperform the 5670. It will also generate a lot more heat, so that must be a consideration as well. Regardless, the 5670 is a solid choice and should serve myowaiwin well. HOOAH!!!
DX 11 is not important for me because i think 5670 can't handle the DX 11 games well
but psu is just 450 W so i think i shouldn't use power hungry cards.
and i have some more question.
1. i'l buy 5670 before end of this year but, i want to know is which one is better between intel HD graphic and 4650 1 GB.
CPU - i3 530 3.3GHz, 2GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Gigabyte H55S2H, Resolution: 1280 * 720 medium setting
(games - WOW, COD 4/5, NFS undercover, CNC RA 3, Silent Hunter 5)
2. my friend is using 8600GT and he told me, it's better than my other friend's 9400GT, is it true?
3. where can i get the software to record FPS, CPU and chipset temperature while during the game play? (plz give me the link)
