  1. Well I guess since you have one already CF would be easier, but its gonna eat alot of power. Whats your PSU?

    The dual 6850's is the more powerful combination, but I would take the 6950, just so I wouldn't have to deal with a dual card setup.

    If you do go with the 6950, make sure its at a good price, otherwise its not worth it over the 7870 which just had a price drop. ;-)

    Pop around the benchmarks, see what prices you would be buying at, and start to form your decision.
  5. Well you currently have a more fundamental problem, in that your power supply only has
    1x6 pin and 1x6+2 pin power connector. So dual GPU solutions might be hard without some molex adapters.

    But yeah I would definitely sell the 6850, save a little, and get the 7870.
  6. The graphics card i have is an msi 6850 cyclone edition. Powered with a single 6pin
  7. Well then I retract my earlier statement. I was thinking about using dual 6950's for some reason. But still, get a 7870 :P.
  8. K I'll look into it

    I have a friend who's considering doing a build soon so I'll probably just sell him my 6850.

    If decides not to do a build I'll just crossfire my 6850... I live in the middle of nowhere/farmland etc.. so selling it on craigslist or whatever in my area will be impossible
  9. If it comes to it, you could try selling your card here on the forums.
