    5850 Crossfire

    I have a 5850 Powercolor currently and I would like to crossfire it with another 5850 how ever the powercolor model is discontinued so the card goes for about 266$ minimum online new. Meanwhile there is a Saffire model for 134$ on new egg.

    Now the question is... Can I mix brands when I crossfire? Any help would be great, thanks.


    Edit: I'm assuming if I find a card with close to the same specs I should be fine?

    That's what I ended up doing. Researched a bit and grabbed a 5870 and overlocked my 5850 to the same speeds for now, I'll OC them both higher when I have time to test stuff.

    Thanks guys.
