Single Radeon 6850 card or crossfire and AMD MOBO Tags: Radeon Crossfire AMD Components Last response: March 3, 2012 2:57 AM in Components Share padraicp March 2, 2012 11:16:08 PM Hello, I am considering an iBUYPOWER AMD 8150FX. Do I need the Gigabyte MOBO AMD 990FX or would the AMD 970 suffice? Is the difference in cost for dual Radeon 6850 graphics cards and a single 6850 card worth it in terms of better performance?

All the best Brett ohyouknow March 3, 2012 12:57:50 AM The 970 mobo will run in x16 and x4 for the pciex slots. If I'm not mistaken, it is not the ideal setup in crossfiring video cards as the x4 will not be at full potential. Best of luck. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
