Jun 6, 2011, 3:08 PM
Can i put these two cards together without problems?
i want to put them together(no crossfire) and overclock them both will there be any problems?
I heard Sapphire trixx will only work with the first gpu, will MSI Afterburner work with both of them?
Im using Afterburner right know with the Powercolor.

Yes, you can put these cards together without any problems, MSI Afterburner works on 90% of the cards, so it should work with both of them.

Yeah they should most definitely work together but I would be careful about overclocking either of them.

Well probably 5850s are great OCers and can reach very high clocks, while keeping temps fine, so i wouldn't worry about that.

I mean because they are different. But go right ahead. Should be okay.
