So ive come to the decision that it's time to upgrade into crossfire. I have the 6950 from before and have ben looking at the new generation ones. After reading the FAQ i'm unsure of what to do. So let's say I pair the 6950 with a 7970, will the 7970 then lower it's performance down to a 6950? What would be the best for me to upgrade to?
Also, does it matter what manifactur it comes from such as XFX, MIS, Sapphire etc?
Honestly, yes you're just better off buying a single 7970. They're pretty cheap right now, too. You won't be using as much power, will produce less heat, and won't have to deal with microstuttering (if its an issue for you).
