Yes you can use one, only one, but if you add another for crossfire there will be problems. about the model i would go for http://www.msi.com/product/vga/R6670-MD1GD3.html, msi has the best cooling solutions. Andy69 February 14, 2012 12:59:42 PM oh and what about the cards memory speed? will ddr5 make big difference over ddr3 in my pc? ricardois February 14, 2012 1:40:08 PM are you saying you have one card in your pc with ddr3 and wan't to add another ddr5? well, probably they will work at the lowest memory speed, i don't know how much this will affect performance but VRAM ddr3 to ddr5 have a good performance improvement. try keep same card speed and same memory size for best performance. Andy69 February 14, 2012 1:50:25 PM no, i have integrated graphics atm. i'll go with dd3. ricardois February 14, 2012 2:40:39 PM if you find one ddr5 to sell go for it, your computer memory is not the video memory, it is ok to use ddr3 on computer, and ddr5 on VRAM, and know that the performance will be a little better if you buy a ddr5 already. Here you see some tests: http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?act=... take something like these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... also be warned that probabily this CPU will bottleneck your graphics, but the performance increase will be already very good, so for usage of 100% of video card would be good changing the cpu. you should also add more memory, at least 4gb i think (consequently change windows). but just for now you can upgrade only the graphics with no problem.
