I seem have this problem where I always get the black sheep videocard that everybody hates.
I had a Geforce FX5950... umm yeah.
well now I've gotten myself into the same kind of boat and about a year ago I bought myself a Radeon HD 5870. I wanted this card because it was the best one I could get without going dualGPU, and the price tag wasn't too bad. Looking forward I was thinking of getting a second card for Crossfire, something I didn't think I"d ever do, but now that ATI has me hooked on Eyefinity, the extra processing power could really help my multi-monitor display. Something I wouldn't bother with on only one display.
So here is my question. (trying to keep it away from a "what should I buy" question)
With the information that's floating around about ATI fusion, would it work to purchase a different videocard than the one I currently have? Does Fusion work with 2 discrete videocards, or is it only designed to harness the unused power of your integrated graphics chip when using discrete graphics?
I can't find my videocard on NCIX anymore, although I haven't tried newegg, I've seen a few on ebay, but if I can upgrade to a 6000 series and "fusion" my cards together, that would be a better solution than scouring the internet for a used card to match mine. Assuming it works that way.
