Unusual Crossfire Configuration Possible?
I'm looking into a new video card for my system and I'm debating the Radeon HD 6000 series vs the 7000s. I'm leaning towards the 6000s because I hope I can crossfire it with my current setup, but am unsure how well everything will work together.
Currently I'm running an A8-3850 APU and a 6670 on a Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H FM1. The MB has a PCIe x16 and a PCIe x4 slot.
I would like to have 3 monitors going off the new video card (for gaming/high performance) and a couple other monitors running off my current 6670 (movies, non-demanding). If I crossfire a new 6950 with the APU, can I;
1. Run 3 monitors off the crossfired pair, or am I stuck with the video outputs on the motherboard (which only supports 2)?
2. Also run the 6670 independently (on the x4 slot) for extra video outputs?
If I can't do the above, the 7850 sounds better because of the lower power requirements for approximately equal performance. It's a lot to absorb, I know, but what do the experts of Icrontic think?
