I have an rx 470 in my system at the moment and I am considering buying a refurbished rx480 to run in crossfire with it. Everything in my PC is compatible, I am just wondering if it is a good idea. I have heard many people talk about how crossfire is a terrible idea and should be avoided, but I want to know why this is or is not true. Any experts on the topic?
The GPU architecture only needs to be the same, so any GPUs from the same line will work together (some one who tested it out https://wccftech.com/rx-480-rx-470-crossfire/ ). I am running an i56600k with an EVGA 650w Gold PSU and a Gigabyte motherboard (can't remember what model, but it supports multi GPU).
