Whats your PSU? | Report abuse claysm July 19, 2012 10:11:40 AM http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/302?vs=293 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. | Report abuse N11Ckk123472 July 19, 2012 10:15:52 AM OCZ ModXTreme 600w | Report abuse Related ressources 6850 Crossfire or 6950 1GB - Forum Will crossfire 6850 's in x16,x4 outperform a 6950 /570 ti - Forum 6850 Crossfire vs 6950 - Forum Crossfire 6850 , or 6950 unlock to 6970?

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. | Report abuse claysm July 19, 2012 10:28:57 AM 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. | Report abuse N11Ckk123472 July 19, 2012 10:38:02 AM The graphics card i have is an msi 6850 cyclone edition.

I was thinking about using dual 6950's for some reason. But still, get a 7870 . | Report abuse N11Ckk123472 July 19, 2012 10:49:29 AM 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 | Report abuse claysm July 19, 2012 10:56:12 AM If it comes to it, you could try selling your card here on the forums. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-8.html | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Crossfire 6850 or 6950?> Related ressources: Forum6950 vs Crossfire 6850 /70 ForumAMD 6850 Crossfire vs 6950 ForumCrossfire 6850 ?
