I think I will just buy two 6850's then and run those SLI. cumi2k4 a b U Graphics card September 3, 2012 12:13:04 PM Err.. the term for AMD is crossfire, not SLI. I think first you should check whether your motherboard support it. And if you're able to buy two 6850, why not go for a single card but higher spec such as 7870 or 7950?

Did some research too and buying just one higher spec card is better then two lower specs running simultaneously. Thanks again! vitornob a b U Graphics card September 3, 2012 2:16:48 PM Why buy 2 6850? Couldn't you buy a better single card? kernal September 3, 2012 2:21:17 PM Best answer selected by kernal.
