Hi all!

I already have in my machine an ATI Radeon HD5670 1 GB.

I am planning to give a little boost to the graphic power of my PC, and according to my budget I have limited my choice to 2 possible options:

1) Another HD5670 to do CrossFireX with the one I already have.

2) HD6670.

I don't know if it's possible to do CrossFire between 5670 and 6670.

What would you recommend me?

Thanks!

I haven't heard anything on crossfiring different gen cards like 5xxx and 6xxx series.The thing is that the 6670 is different than the 5670.The 6670 has more stream procssor's and higher clocks.So I would think that it's not possible it crossfire.Just get another 5670 for crossfire and you should be fine.

What is the make/model of your PSU.

I'm here in Argentina, and not in a major city like Buenos Aires, so it's very difficult for me to find someone who wish to buy it.

Thanks anyway!

It's a OCZ GameXStream 850W PSU, so I believe it's ok for both GPUs :)

Thanks!
