P.S. crossfire setups are known to cause problems so it is better you just buy one powerful graphics card m 0 l nighthawkbne February 10, 2013 8:39:04 PM Thx, for the reply, personally haven't had any issues with the crossfire yet. But I know what you mean. When I build a new system I'll be going for the best single card solution I can afford at the time. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
