Default Crossfire witht his card

Hi, I got this graphic card recently
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102809
Im finding that its not giving me full speed for some games(crysis :P)
But in other games it will have some slow downs and I would like this to stop. So I want to add more power. My question is that what other graphi card should I get to cross fire with it? I only want to spend max at 225
Or should I get another one?
My res is 1920x2200

What are the other specs of your computer? Something tells me graphics card is not your problem.

Yea, the HD 4850 X2 should be plenty to run Crysis. Do you have the latest drivers installed? I'm also interested in the rest of your specs. . .

That's an X2... that's already a dual GPU set-up...

You should be running any current game fine...

after reading this, I just installed new drivers. It runs All my games with out that skiping and crysis runs about 40 fps now. That helped alot.
But do you think If I add another 100$ graphic card and crossed it, it would run crysis full speed?

if i understood you correctly, if you wanted to crossfire another card, it would have to be the same card as your original ( 4850x2 in this case )

a 4850x2 can be cross fired with a regular 4850, because its the same card basicly, just the 4850x2 is 2 4850s together.


you cant crossfire a 4870(x2) with a 4850(x2).
