Closed 2x 6850 or 1x 7850 Tags: Radeon Crossfire Motherboards Graphics Product Last response: July 28, 2012 10:42 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Tmant123 July 28, 2012 8:16:35 AM Simply I'm doing a build and just noticed the price drop on the 6850's and thinking of crossfire. The motherboard is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm wondering if xfire 6850's will be substantial amount of performance between that and a single 7850. Thanks.

Just make sure your PSU can handle both cards and with that CPU, you will not have any issues of any bottlenecks too. Tmant123 July 28, 2012 8:23:39 AM A quality 750w should do it right?

Tmant123 July 28, 2012 8:26:37 AM OCZ, this build is actually for a friend, my system has a 650w ocz and its worked great so I'm thinking to be brand loyal like I usually do. I do the same with Saphire gpu's. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... El Tigre July 28, 2012 8:30:40 AM That PSU will work fine with the CF HD 6850's.
