Upgrading 6870 Tags: Graphics Cards Intel i5 Graphics Last response: May 7, 2012 2:57 PM in Graphics & Displays Share cdfrantzis May 7, 2012 2:23:04 PM I'm currently running an XFX 6870 on and i5 2500K and I was looking to upgrade the graphics on my machine. Do you think it would be better to get a second 6870 and xfire the cards or put down the extra cash and get a 680?
