Worth it to crossfire 2 6850s?? Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire Graphics Product Last response: September 17, 2011 7:31 PM in Graphics & Displays Share amstandi September 15, 2011 7:21:14 PM 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. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is the card I currently have, and I can find the same one with a little difficulty or get the newer version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And if it ends up working, would my current Antec 650 W power supply be enough for two cards along with my i5 2500k? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thanks in advance for any advice!

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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
