What are the advantages(if any) to adding an x850xt to my rig. Its a card i took out of an old Rig and i don't know what to do with it.

My current rig is

i7 920 @ 3.8
6 gigs of RAM

I have a 42" Plasma in my room and i was thinking of getting a long HDMI and wiring it to my PC so i could use it if i ever wanted to. Dunno if this would be an adequate solution. Otherwise i could keep it plugged into the HDMI on my 5870 and just disable one of the 3 monitors if i want to use the plasma. All responses are appreciated. P.S. if anyone has any ideas regarding what i should do with the x850xt lemme know!

Thanks All

If it's supported on your motherboard (via interface) you could indeed use it has a fourth card to power your plasma.

Well if it works then deffinately use it and it will be great.... in my opinion, if it supports it, and the old x850xt works with the 5870 its much better to use it because selling it wont get u much and i bet u can find a better paperweight than a x850xt :kaola:  so yeah use it
