Should I Xfire?


Jul 29, 2009

I have a 1gb ATI Radeon HD 4890 and I want to play Diablo 3 and BF3 etc. on the highest graphics with no lag at all. The single card works great I run all the best games on hardcore settings with just a little lag, but I want it to be flawless. My question is, am I better off with a crossfire (which is nice and cheap, about 70 bucks on ebay) or should I pay a lot of money for a new card?

Here is what I am looking to buy:

And could you please tell me if all the specs check out? Thanks in advance!

CPU: 3.2ghz AMD Phenom II X4 945
Motherboard: AMD ASUSTek M4A78T-E
Graphics: 1gb ATI Radeon HD 4890
RAM: 12gb DDR3
you will have great performance if you crossfire those 2 cards, the only issue is power, you will need a good 750w psu. The next question is, do you want to be able to use DX11? your current card only supports dx10. If that doesn't bother you, and you have a good psu, go for crossfire.
