Crossfire question/Sli Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire SLI Graphics Last response: October 17, 2011 8:29 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Hyderz October 17, 2011 8:11:45 AM Hello fellow members and enthusiast. I have a few questions about crossfire and sli. My Setup atm. Core i5 2500 Gigabyte ga-z68ma-d2h-b3 XFX-6950 1gb 12gb ddr3 1600 HyperX (4x2)(2x2) 1tb Seagate Hdd 750w Cooler Master GX Psu. 1. If i add a second 6950, say for example a 2gb version, does crossfire still work? and which ram will it utilize? the 1gb or 2gb? 2. My motherboard has secondary pci-e slot running at 8x, but i have a feeling adding a secondary card might interfere with the I/O ports, usb, and sound. I don't have a picture so ill post a link. http://www.gigabyte.us/fileupload/product/2/3975/5084.j... 3. Or i should just wait for another year too see the options nvidia and amd will bring out?
