What Would the Master Race Do? Crossfire a Nvidia 550ti or upgrade all together?Posted by finchmeister08 on 4/8/13 at 10:15 am
A buddy of mine built a computer a few months back. He has a 550ti graphics card in it. he wants to be able to play BF4 on it when it releases. should he upgrade the card or buy another 550ti and crossfire it.
I'm not really sure if "crossfire" is the actual term. Just now starting to learn.
We played BF3 on it on ultra settings and it seemed to run fine, however, Dice suggested that it have at least a 560ti for the ultra settings(if i'm not mistaken)

No. You are fine with either but if anything there is asome speculation that with an amd cpu you are better off with a nvidia gpu. Very little research has been done on that though so even that is a bit of a stretch.

not necessarily. different games are developed with either amd or nvidia optimizations that make them preform a little better for either system. I would say more games are optimized for nvidia. Also, if the game is optimized for one the other might take a little time for updated drivers to come out to make things run really well. Driver support is better on nvidia, although the amd beta drivers have been really good lately.
