Re: Need help in Purchasing Budget GPU
Your 1 PCI Express x 16 slot means that you can run crossfire but the link speed will be at 8x/8x not 16x/16x. but dont fret my friend running at 8x/8x doesnt have any noticeable performance difference(s). heres how it ranks in performance, if you have a pci-e slot at 16x then its 100% speed but lower it to 8x then it runs at 95% speed. i had a link that compared 8x/8x sli versus 16x/16x and the difference was 1-3 fps so you good with that mobo. i wish i had the link for the comparison i had. if i find anything ill post it.
heres a crossfire hd4850 8x/8x vs 16x/16x comparison.
heres for sli 8x/8x vs 16x/16x
