Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 7850 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7850 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to 47% better than a single Radeon HD 7850 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7850. Expect this combination to draw up to 260 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.

allegedly the flagship Bristol Ridge APU will have the graphical equivalent of an HD 7850 (16 compute units), so this might be a good equivalent view of dual graphics with the 'A16-9XXX'

hence why I said allegedly, the only ways I can think of is either the motherboard would have soldered in GDDR5X RAM specifically for the iGPU or the APU could only get that much bandwidth with quad channel very high performance DDR4 ram (high frequency low latency)

7850 is rated poorly. A pair of 7850's in many occasions outperforms a 7970 and gtx680.
Also, 7850 CF DOES NOT have 4 gigs of VRAM. In multi GFX setups nothing gets doubled/tripled/quadrupled or whatsoever. There still are only two gigabytes of vram for this setup.

I still use these in Xfire I can still play all the games that are coming out at very high and lower settings.. Heck I was playing battlefront on almost everything maxed out and still got around 35-45fps.. Tough little cards for being 3 years old to my rig.

I guess my CPU will be a bottleneck if i decide to upgrade to this, but is it possible to overclock it even more or something to not let it become a bottleneck. If not, what is the best card on pair with this CPU?

I plan on buying 2 of these.Will a thermaltake smart 730w be good enough? (The psu is listed in the psu section)

I doubt 430w would be enough input your specs on this and see if its enough: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
-Edit- Your PSU only has one 6+2 pin connector and no 6 pin connectors but it might be possible to use a adapter, also your CPU would bottleneck 7850 crossfire.

yeah you should get at least an i5-3470, 3570 or 3570k will go nicely, if you can, get the i7-3770 which would work wonders with 7850 XFIRE

Actually a 2500k is plenty and it will not bottleneck the 2 gpus.

This card is only 11% better than mine. I don't understand this. This card have 512bit bus and mine only 192, this have 307GB/sec bandwidth and mine 144 and etc. So why is only 11%?

No, that's alright buddy. We decided to use these generic images instead because the real ones look really bad. Thanks for the offer!
