More about radeon powercolor 7850 motherboard
  1. The motherboard link isn't a link can you fix the link sir.
  2. I see a gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 in between those links, if it's that motherboard, it supports 2-ways crossfire or sli, with enough space between the slots.
    But i recommend going with a single card over two 7850, like a 7950, it's cheaper.
  3. Agreed get the best single card you can afford. You don't run into scaling, added heat, additional power consumption, and in return get more stability.
  4. Yeah, I can afford that without going in the red on my budget, but my friend told me not to get a cooler since im not overclocking, if the processor increases .2ghz from overclock theres really no reason too, but my question is that since I already made up my mind on the crossfire, should I add a cooler???
  5. My friend encouraged crossfiring this and it made a lot of sense too, please correct me if im wrong..
  6. A cooler for what ? Nobody mentioned the cpu cooler or if you need to overclock the cpu.
    I still recommend going with a single card than two 7850, if it were two 7950, but two 7850, it's not a good choice, for the price you'll pay for those two, you can get a 7950 or even the 7970.
    And you don't need additional coolers for the cards.
  7. ^+1 agreed its still a stronger solution to have 1 strong card.
  8. Ok, seems to make sense as well, perhaps just pointing me into the direction of a card that is simular in power of those cards combined, 400 dollar budget on the card though :D
  9. This one will be a good card for you : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125413

    The 7970 gigabyte windforce 3x has a good cooling system, and the 7970 is a high end card, it will maxout any game.
  10. haha we linked the same card zing
  11. Yes, it was the cheapest 7970 with a good cooling system.

  13. OMG we posted the same thing at the same time!!!! LOL!!
  14. Thanks so much guys, it added an extra $230 to the build, making the overall price $1400 (shipping already included excluding mir)
    Totally worth it!!
  15. I'm sure it will be completely worth it when you can do what you want with no problems at all.
