Hi guys from South Africa I am building a rig solely for gaming and am on a tight budget. I want to should i crossfire or not here are my specs
cpu: AMD FX 6100
mobo: msi 970a-g46 crossfire and sli supported
memory: 4GB ddr3 1600 mhz
PSU: aerocool strike x 650w 80 plu
case: Raidmaster viper
HDD:1tb western digital caviar blue
GPU:Sapphire HD 7770 GHz edition 1 GB GDDR5
i might buy a second card in a month or 2 should i crossfire or just get a better card.
power usage is not much difference either so the biggest caveat is getting everything to play nice. I have been on both sides, some go really smooth and others never fully work right. A single GPU is always the most attractive solution.
Good luck !
