Hey guys! If you've read the description of my newest completed build, my friend ditched his old HD 5830. By ditched I mean he gave it to me. I am comparing to my current R9 380, and the card is massive. Specs don't seem to bad either, it has 1GB of GDDR5 memory, which is great too. I have a couple questions.
Can I crossfire it? Is it possible to do so, and will it give me any noticable performance increase? The idea of crossfire seems great, but I'm not sure if I can do it with two different AMD GPUs.
If I can't CF, how much would it be worth in AUD? I might sell it if I don't CF it. Or I could...
Potentially buy a Core 2 Quad Extreme Edition, 8GB of RAM and a 120GB SSD for about $120. Pair it with the GPU, an old case I have lying around and a cheap decent PSU and I might have a semi capable gaming rig depending on its performance. This is another question BTW, how does this card perform in modern titles (Watchdogs, Forza 6 Apex, Just Cause 3, Etc).
Thanks everyone! I might post a dank photo of it and compare it to my old card if I can find the time. :D
