Default Crossfire, when NOT to do? - 05-05-2012, 23:28 | posts: 2

Hi!

I have ordered a new computer, coming with an Radeon HD 7770 1 GB. Now in my older computer I have a Radeon HD 5700 1 GB.

I'm thinking about setting up a crossfire but I've heard that some cards aren't supposed to crossfire since the bad card can drag down the good one.

So what do you guys suggest here?

Thanks! I appreciate any answers!

You can't crossfire the 7770 with the 5700.
