But for two, You won't lose any performance. | Report abuse Asura23 August 10, 2012 10:48:51 AM adzx said:For one 4870, a i5 is overkill. But for two, You won't lose any performance.

Yea i think i'll forget the crossfire. I'm reading that it's more hit and miss for games. And with a 4xxx series crossfire, the drivers gonna be hard to find. Thx anyway for the answer | Report abuse Stupido August 10, 2012 11:49:19 AM maybe it is hit & miss with 4xxx series, but as of 6xxx series it scales as high as 90+ % in many games... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Do i need to change my 4870 with a i5 3550?> Related ressources: ForumI5 3550 vs i5 3570k ForumWhich GPU with i5 3550 CPU?
