Hi guys,

I decided, I'd like to buy whole new PC.... But I need a little help.

What i want to do with new config:

- networking (browsing/uploading/downloading)
- Playing BF3 (I know, I told before: I hate that, but....) smiley
- Capturing/editing/converting HD videos



I tried to build my 'new PC', but I need some informations before about ATi Crossfire.

I read on many sites, Crossfire can handle 2 different cards with "scissor mode".
My plan, then I'll wait opinions, experiences:
*************************************************
MAIN: ASROCK Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
SUPPLY: DEER 500W v2.2 14cm FAN
CPU: INTEL Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz 1155 BOX
RAM: 2x KINGMAX 8192MB DDR3 1333MHz KIT
VGA: 2x SAPPHIRE 11192-14-20G HD6670 1GB GDDR5 PCIE

It costs ~640 EUR here
*************************************************
And what do you think... HD5670 (my current) and HD6670 can work together?

BTW... Is it a working (compatible) config??? smiley

thanks

EDIT: or maybe a single HD6870 should be better choice?

If I was you I'd go for a 2GB graphics card (6950?). Currenly playing the beta with crappy textures and using 1Gb of vram on my GTX 570. You might have to upgrade your pwer supply.

Power supply is always good to have too much of when building/upgrading.

A very good singel graphics card is better than 2 SLI/crossfire unless you want ultra high settings in BF3 and other video excellence. You almost never get 100% worth of speed/quality for you money. So if you can afford it, pic a brand and take the hottest they have, tape it together smiley (SLI/cross) and have fun.

Harddrive; Consider using SSD for systemfiles and another for all the rest and a 3.rd for backup if you can afford that.

Good luck and check alot of sources before deciding how to proceed.


IRL; Awesome graphics, shitty gameplay smiley

@One2One69,

Thanks for info, but i dont understand, and dont know what does 'scaling' means smiley smiley

But I'll buy 1 card only. As I saw the details, 1x HD6870 faster than 2x HD6670. So I'll choose that, but!

What do you think about: Is possible to make WORKING crossfire with my current 5670 and new 6870 (in scissor mode)?

Is possible to use CPU-integrated vga to boost 6870? or that is onlya a wasted resource..?

Scalability (in a nutshell)

if one system finishes a task T in time X and scalability is linear, then
two systems working parallely on a task T will finish the task in time X/2 (read: perform 2x better).

I would not stick to 2 graphic adapters as well - I'd rather buy one good (maybe with 2 GPU dice on it) than using 2 individual cards via SLI/Crossfire (although it scales very well as one already pointed out).

Plus: with that config I'd say your PSU is underpowered - I'd recommend a 600W with 80%+ efficiency.


Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
