I currently have a Radeon HD 4850 card and I’m very happy whit it.
But I bout a new 3D TV and now I need a new card with HDMI 1.4 port.
I currently can’t afford to buy a new card for let’s say 150+$ (for 6850 for example) and I’m still happy with my old HD 4850.
On the other side there is HD 6450 which is very cheap for about 50$
Can I plug my old HD 4850 and a new HD 6450 on at the same time on the other PCI-E slot of the mother board?
The general idea to use the old HD 4850 for games and the new HD 6450 only for the HDMI 1.4 port.
My mother board is Gygabyte with 780G chipset.
PCI-E 2.1 and 2.0 are backwards compatible with each other, no need to worry. Good choice with the 6670, it is currently the best lower prices graphics card out there and one of the best that can run without a beefy power supply.
