Hello All, and thanks in advance for any help provided.
I built my own gaming computer last year, and it's been working like a champ! I do think it's about time to do some upgrades, though and I have a few questions:
In my computer, I have:
-- GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P AM3 DDR3 AMD 790X ATX AMD mobo in my computer (link
), and I believe it has two PCIE slots (one x16 and one x8, but I'm not sure on this).
--XFX HD-487A-ZHDC Radeon HD 4870 1GB XXX 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card (link
) in my computer, in the PCIE x16 slot.
Finally, I'm looking to purchase a HIS H585FN1GD Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity video card (link
I'm wondering three things:
1. Are there really two PCIE slots in my mobo?
2. Will these two cards both work in the PCIE slots in my mobo?
3. Will these cards work together with crossfire?
Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
