Worth it to crossfire 2 6850s??

Hello all.

After reading up on the micro-stuttering issues with mid and lower end cards in SLI configurations, I was wondering if it would be worth it to run 2 gigabyte 6850s together.

This is the card I currently have, and I can find the same one with a little difficulty or get the newer version:

And if it ends up working, would my current Antec 650 W power supply be enough for two cards along with my i5 2500k?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

  1. It worth it, from my point of view and some reviews and benchies, there is a slightly more punch than a GTX 580 and even (again slightly less power consumption)
    Also you should consider reading this or other reviews.

  2. If you still care, I just decided to add a second 6850 to my setup.

    I have an antec 650W and it works fine.

    I am very happy with the purchase but be warned- crossfire often demands some troubleshooting and that can be annoying.
