5970 4 gig and 5970 2 gig in cfx?

I just got a 5970 4 gig version and its sweet..I noticed that its not the smallest card and it takes up 2 slots..
I might be able to fit another in there for my eyefinity setup..

if not can I crossfire it with another 5970 2 gig version? I mean I dont see why not, its the same card just additional memory..

thanks

    Should work, they use the same Graphics Chipset. Sweeet Graphics cards =D. I got a HD 5870, pretty nice too.
  2. Yes, it should work, no matter what the amount of memory, as long you have 2x HD5970 you could CF it... :)
    Just make sure you have an enough power on your PSU.
  3. You can cf them IMO, tho you will be limited to 1Gb VRAM I would imagine.

    Remember, cf uses the lowest VRAM per GPU, ie 1Gb from your "reference" 2Gb card.

    Therefore, negating the the 4Gb card performance.
  4. i would not do it because your wasting your 4gb 5970 that did cost a fortune :/
