I was wondering if it's even possible to Crossfire the ATI 5670 512mb card? Because it doesn't have anywhere to connect like a bridge. I know that the 5670 1GB version you can, but i'm not sure about this one.


Thanks guys.

Yes, its internal crossfire. They communicate over the pci-e bus.
Do you have a crossfire ready m/b ?

That mobos runs at x16 and x4 which kind of gimps the performance gains of your crossfire a little bit. Not sure how much it affects those cards though as they're not very powerful anyways.

This motherboard is considerably more expensive however it supports 8/8 pcie 16x operations and I recommend it.

Otherwise you could get THIS nvidia chipset motherboard that supports 8/8 and is slightly cheaper (and SLi Ready)

EDIT: actually, I change my mind, The bottom one is the best for pricing and features.

Ok cool, i'll check them out. You stated it supports SLI, but what about CF, because I have an ATI card.

Uh... last time I checked you couldn't crossfire on a 750a board...
I recommend this board, cheaper than all but your 1st board you linked, usb3/sata6 and x8/x8 crossfire without having to hack it...

Also, if you could get an extra $35 or so, the 5770 is much better than the 5770.

If you already have the 5670, that's irrelevant of course.

Ok cool I'll prolly get the Assrock board. I know that the 5770 is a lot better, but I can't afford it right now. I mean CF with 5670 will give me pretty good graphics for mid gaming right?

Here are best case scenario results.
http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5670-review-tes...
eVGA X58 Classified

Processor

Core i7 965 @ 3750 MHz (3.6 + Turbo mode).

Graphics Cards

Radeon HD 5670 512MB reference (x2)

Right around the 5770 performance, sometimes less, some more.

I would not chase this combo with a lot of money. A gts 450 will be had for 100 dollars soon, (maybe).

Not really, dual 5670s are like a 5770, and 512MD is going to hold you back more. Honesty, for the cost of the Mobo+GPU, you could get a GTX460 which blows both dual 5670s and a single 5770 away.

Oh ok. Yea, I really like the gtx460, but I already purchased the 5670 :( 
And the gtx460 is like $100 more than the 5670.
