Does it actually make a difference? because Im thinking of 2 4850x2's
IMHO, better use single card than SLI, why ?
bcoz SLI/CF does not give u 200% performance
4850x2 = $160x2 = $320
can u find something worth than it ?
btw if u wanna SLI, why don't try 4770x2
thats quad crossfire, and makes a lot less difference than regular crossfire.
with 4 GPU's, aint no way in hell your Q6600 is going to feed that fully.
it would feed it better than two 4890 CF, by giving it even more gpu power.
We have already seen what it did with that chip.....
what do you mean? are you saying I'd have to overclock?
Even overclocked, a Q6600 is gonna bottleneck a quad crossfire setup. I'd get a Q9450+, i7 or a Phenom II setup if you go quad fire.
Yeah, my q6600 @ 3GHz has a hard time keeping up with the 4890s. Better than my previous E8400 at 4GHz tho, in my opinion.
But for quad CF, seriously if you have the money for four highend GPUs, might as well go for a highend CPU too.
well that sucks a bit, I guess Ill go for 2 4870's since they're worth near nothing now-a-days(compared to most graphics cards). I don't have a lot of money so I guess Ill save up for a really good pc for next time going back to AMD
I wouldnt say worth nothing. They are a very good value...not that long ago I paid $179 for my 9600GTs.
I just got a 4870 for that.
my Q6600 at 3.6Ghz was bottlenecked badly with two 4870's in crossfire - no matter what 3D app it was, OCing my video cards made ZERO difference to speed. i had to go my xeon at 4.2 in order to get even minor boosts.
