75 dollars to crossfire 7870's?
I just wanted to know the experience of some people who had crossfired 7870's in the past. I found a few on craigslist, and was wondering if it would be worth it to crossfire two of them together (I already have one, a 7870 hawk). Opinions?
Very funny Scotty, now beam down my clothes
As with any multi GPU gaming application, you will only get a performance boost if it is supported within the GPU's drivers. I have 2 R9 290X's that I run in crossfire for battlefield and it is a definite boost in performance over a single card. When I play H1Z1 however, I have to turn crossfire off because it causes more harm than good since it's not a supported game. Crossfire in general is only good if the game is supported within the GPU drivers. Honestly, I use a single card more often than the two in crossfire.

But, even without having to provide benchmarks or Performance gains, you will notice a difference in Playable frame-rates and (If you change it) smoother texture's.
