Dual HD7770 or Single HD7950 Tags: Computers Configuration Graphics Last response: March 20, 2013 7:04 AM in Graphics & Displays Share SuperHornet March 20, 2013 6:52:25 AM I've got a 3 year old home built computer that I need to upgrade a few parts on. Here's the current config: Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Intel X58 Processor: Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.8GHz Memory: OCZ Titanium 8GB DDR3 Memory PS: XFX 750W Black Edition Current Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD5830 w/ 1GB DDR5 I have the option of either going to two Radeon HD7770 Crossfired or a single HD7950. Wanted to get some input on which way to go. The computer is mostly an engineering machine used to run Finite Element and Solid Modeling, but I also game with it as well. Thanks for your help!
