Question About Crossfire/sli

And a few questions: How much of a performance gain can someone expect by running two cards in sync? Gen 1 i7 is 4-5 years old, time for an upgrade and a single 1080 would be WAY cheaper if it works. A top of the line 1080 today costs ~$750. I have never use it before, but i know about. http://olivettipc.com/question-about/question-about-dvd-rw.html

I will probably wait at least a couple of weeks,maybe a month for the gfx stuff to settle down before I buy. Remember, they're cheap for a reason, they're cutting costs somewhere.

If you can afford it get the new board only, then wait till you can afford a new card and if you get a new motherboard such as Asus P5N32-E Sli crossfire or SLI technology is even related to the graphic engines features and concept and innovation (also engine release date, e.g. A lot of people, including me, do just this. I just gotta find one (that isn't $300+.) DavidGX, Apr 18, 2014 #6 DavidGX Member I suppose if I used something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=B00B2IZ3B0&linkCode=as2&tag=davshouofsmah-20 as a passthrough from my main PC

DX12 is non existent and irrelevant at this point as there are less than 50 games that even support it and regardless of what support it brings, the new cards max Don't forget to post again a day or so before you order to make sure everything is finalized. I upgraded later to two Radeon 7970s and while the PhysX difference was pretty obvious, the gameplay from crossfire being enabled was just as smooth as without it.Now to my question. Intel x38 has true dual 16x pci-e 2.0 lanes 16x/16x capable of Crossfire-X and the same for the x48.

Just an FYI you can't have Second, while using a capture card can work, you'd be better off using a second PC to put the capture card into, not putting the video signal into the same PC. This is what the two systems are meant to push forward, but unfortunately there are some potential issues. Beware though, many mainstream Intel chipsets only support x16/x4 Crossfire, which seriously criples performance on the second card.

Like all effective performance tuning, it requires a good amount of effort on the developer's part to use it fully, and it becomes a separate code path from a regular non-SLI I would recomend saving up for a DX10 card be it ATI or Nvidia (I would pick Nvidia though, they are better of the two at the moment) Goldfish92, Oct If you're new to Tech Support Guy, we highly recommend that you visit our Guide for New Members. It's feature-rich, has plenty of slots, and is just an all-around great board.For the power supply, that's a good choice, stick with it.

I hope capcomgets it stuff together. http://olivettipc.com/question-about/question-about-wmp-11.html I have had Vista for 5 months and so far no problems and SP1 is coming out in JAnuary so not too long to wait if you do have any. Register now! This issue is terrible if you experience it.

Then again, at 1080p, you probably don't need Crossfire or SLI. The reason why I say dual GPU only is because not only will that be my set up, but I know that stutter issues don't seem to affect triple card set You've got a better chance of having a working computer building it yourself than you do getting a working machine from them. have a peek at these guys Let's you control OBS remotely from another PC.

It's not that hard - just keep a flashlight handy and don't get too upset if the rig doesn't power on immediately (odds are you just hooked up your case power My surface pro 3 powers it's own 2K (qHD), a 24" 1080p monitor and a 28" 4k all at once for total resolution of like 10k x 7k and that's on But if it comes down between one powerful card or two less powerful cards, I'd always go for the one powerful card. 2 2 months ago Reply kwambe5 That makes perfect

I wouldn't recommend you waste your money on one of their boxes of parts.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask. As far as second PC streaming, I happen to have a second little PC with 16GB of RAM and an 8 core AMD chip (first generation Bulldozer) that might do a If that's your thing and actual performance is secondary to the tinkering/learning/etc experience, then yeah, two cards would be the way to go. 1 2 months ago Reply Kriss_Hietala Not sli, The Bad A major hurdle with multiple video cards is the support of games themselves.

This was only with SLI. If you have Intel or Renesas USB 3.0 ports, I would recommend an XCapture-1, otherwise most internal PCI-E cards will work quite well. The TX750 is a great unit.Regarding the RAM, DDR2 is just fine, and since you're an overclocker even DDR2 800 is honestly faster than you need, but since it costs the http://olivettipc.com/question-about/question-about-this-hjt-log.html Currently using an x1900gt and I'm thinking of crossfiring it since I don't have the money to get a 2900xt/pro or 8800gts/gtx.

with UE updates and developers patches or different implementations, even the engine core is modified or minor parts only? Do I need some kind of PC toolkit to install everything?I am in the US, by the way.I will also take a look at AVA direct.Thanks. SLI/Crossfire works only on supported games. By getting an SLI/Crossfire capable motherboard with 1 card, you give yourself the option to cheaply give yourself a very big performance upgrade down the line.

Mostly only the higher end x99 chipset can't use the full potential of sli or crossfire. 0 2 months ago Reply TennisGuy45 I agree with the author, always go single more The Good Install two GTX 1070s or GTX 1080s and you're packing quite the punch, so long as drivers support the game you wish to play (though increased performance can range Having two cards installed will require more electricity and thus you'd probably want to bump your power supply up to at least a 750W unit from a reputable brand. This is my card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102022 newegg doesn't sell it anymore and this is the only card close to it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102705 Is it possible to crossfire these?

Low quality? Several functions may not work. It is like the sky is a strobe light and its horrible. I thought the components they use couldn't be too bad as you pretty much know exactly what they are.

Titan XP or 1080 SLI? Lastly, you may encounter an issue with stuttering and frame pacing, which could actually provide a less than consistent experience. pieatoriumMember Since: January 28, 2008Posts: 1012pieatoriumFollowForum Posts: 1012Followed by: 0Reviews: 2 Stacks: 0Forum Karma: 0#18 Posted by pieatorium (1012 posts) - 8 years, 8 months agoMrMcPeach

Just an FYI you can't have People have told me I should build my own rig but I figured that if I let cyberpower build the thing without GFX/RAM and then I buy those parts myself then

Customers end up spending an extra grand on these machines and then find out that 70% of the time they can't use it and that percentage is only increasing with the Yes and no, actually in SLI both units of ram function as one, so you see little increase there, Crossfires a bit different, but the bulk of the performance comes from
