    Evening all,

    I'm looking for crossfire, and my board the asus maximus II formula has to pci express graphics slots, but if both are used in crossfire they run at 8x, so my question is simple, will this hinder my performance gain in crossfire compared to having 2 slots running at 16x? how much of a bottleneck will it be, if at all?

    peace

    with just 2 4890s you will see no bottleneck at all - 2 4870x2's is a different story, but 2 4890s is :thumb:
