Thinking about getting an eyefinity set up (possible?)
hd 6850 phenom II x4 3.2ghz 4gb ddr3 ram Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply
newegg is doing a deal on 22 inch monitors for labor day for 100 each with free shipping and im thinking this is the perfect time to get the eyefinity displays ive wanted, but i have a few questions
im slowly getting into pcs but i cant answer these myself yet so here we go
from a performance stand point i get about 50-60 fps on every game i play on max or high settings(the most graphic heavy so far being deus ex) and im wondering what kind of fps can i expect with eyefinity?
should i upgrade my power supply or would it still be enough?
should i get 4 more gb of ram since its only another 30 bucks or so?
would it not be worth it unless i buy another 6850 and crossfire them?
More aboutthinking eyefinity possible
anybody have any opinions on this? i kind of have like 2 days to decide ;(
You should get the extra hd6850 first, because I have triple eyefinity and cf6950's and eyefinity will lower your fps dramatically!
if i get another 6850 for sure ill have to get a better power supply right?
Yes I would recommend a 750watt psu
I would agree with greghome, I was thinking of the hd6950, you said cf 6850's if you don't plan on overclocking the 600 watt will do!
I have a 6850 and using 3 22" screens. Obviously settings have to be dropped but it's quite fine running most games. Just realise that you won't be playing many on max settings and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Yesterday I think? Been back for a couple of weeks.
