They'll run great in Crossfire. The DirectX 11 generation of cards give you on average around 80-85% gain through having a card in crossfire\sli.

Example being 2 x GTX 460's, in SLI, give the same performance as a GTX 580, whilst saving money at the same time. Crossfire\SLI have come of age.

You´re mobo has to support Cf with a sufficent bandwith. I´ll first need to get a new mobo. But i´ll give it a try when i have all the money together.

@Pete:
My mobo is a ASUS P5Q Pro with 2 x PCI-E x16...but the second slot just supports 8 lanes.
How much would the performance shrink ??? What do you reckon "master of hardware" ??? Very Happy

Pete: The master of hardware. lol! lol!

There's not much of a difference between 8x and 16x. As long as it isnt 4x you'll be fine. There may be 4 fps less than with 16x when you have PCI-E 2.0

Not sure if that's a good deal though. Here in Holland for that price i think 86 pound is like 110 euro?
You can get here a Sapphire ATI Radeon 5850 Extreme.

Ah ok i understand. But you don't really need the same cards, you can make 2 different ati cards work together.

Exso's right, the performance won't be that much different due to the 8x.

What do you mean? That it will run 8x/8x in crossfire? But it's not that big of a differents between 16x/16x,
if that's what you're saying. It's 5-10% faster then 8x/8x so you won't notice much.

But it's he's choice, if i could get a faster/slightly faster card for the same money i would do it lol Razz

But even then the difference between PCI E 2.0 16x/16x and 8x/8x is not more than 5 fps.
