Hey
Well i have sorted all my other problems with my pc out and now i am gonna probably make a new one.
That is unless i ask for your assistance. Which i am doing.
I am getting a new GPU ATI Radeon HD4870
The market leading GPU i think. It costs uite a bit and so does my computer. So, i dont want to mess up the install.
I know there are guides and i know how to put it in but i have a few questions.
I have a SLI array at the moment, two nvidia 7950 GPUs, i soubt it, but woth a shot,

Is it possible to make a SLI/Crossifre array. So i have one of my nvidia GPUs working with my new ATI GPU. If it is possible is there a downside?

Not to do with the GPU but anyways, I have a 64 bit intel processor, i guess that is the only thing i need to allow Vista 64 bit to run.​

I think that is all the questions i have at the moment, if i think of anymore i wont hesitate to ask.
I am not getting the components for a few months, i will post about my installation closer to the date.

Thanks in advance
Duncan

You can't do a Radeon/GF mix array. CF and SLI are very picky about what you use, even of their own kind. Remember to completely remove your own graphics drivers before putting the new card in.

Well, 4850 CF would perform about 10-15% better(assuming the game takes full advantage of both cards), but that would be way more expensive, and you'd need a new motherboard to use CF.
