Windows 7: Crossfire question

Crossfire question

Hello Guys and girls,

I was hoping you could give me some details on a specific question I have.. Can Crossfire be used exclusively on some games while other games rely on one card only?

I ask this as I am thinking of making the purchase of an additional 280x but I do own one or two games which do not work well with crossfire or so I've read, but other games have full support.

So I wonder, can a profile be set for specific games to not use crossfire or is it the other way around and games will not use crossfire unless instructed to?

Well it really depends on the game if it supports Crossfire or SLi technology or not.

I think you will need to instruct the game to use crossfire.

To Crossfire, or not to Crossfire
I've been thinking about buying a second Radeon HD 4890 for my PC. Since I already have an ATI, going SLI would be expensive as I'd have to buy 2 graphics cards instead of one plus what would I do with my Radeon? So if I'm going multi-GPU, Crossfire is where I'm going. However, is it really worth...
