Hihoo all I recently just got back on crossfire after been gone for awhile to find out my laptop struggles to handle crossfire even with low settings constantly freezing and stuff and hoping to upgrade at some point without burning a hole in my pocket idealy I just was something that can handle crossfire nice and smoothly just like it should for not too much money not really to interested in any other games at all as I'll never get bored of crossfire so what can people recommended I don't mind about desktop or laptop just want something that can handle crossfire smoothly
My old Desktop was an intel core 2 duo 3.00ghz with 4 gig of ram and an old Nvida 7600gt 256 mb video card. That system used to run CF2.0 quite smoothly. That is quite a cheap system to get as those parts are now considered to old.
So not a flash modern expensive PC needed really.
I also have 2 laptops with similer CPU's and Ram, But they will not play CF2.0 as the video card thats built into them is nowhere near good enough. So maybe the issue with your Laptop is the video card thats in it is not up to the job
Yea intel integrated graphic chipset (not cards) are trash, they dont even run minecraft
well looks like I'll be upgrading to that then dented ship :p
and also Home World 1 and 2
wrong thread about mentioning games ?
But yeah try Homeworld Deserts of Kharak also awesome
yeah it posted on here for some reason haha I'm using my phone on this website haha
At least here it wasnt just homework 1 n 2
yeah ROFL 😂😅
any updates on this looking to spend between £200-500?
About £300-350 will probably be enough to play Crossfire in Full HD (1920x1080). I'd recommend the following hardware as a budget minimum:
Motherboard: LGA1150/1151 for Intel, AM4 for AMD
CPU: dual-core with the highest clock speed
Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 / AMD Radeon R9 280 and up (look at MSI Gaming X versions for great cooling and low noise)
RAM: 4 GB
Storage: 7200 rpm HDD
PSU: 400 Watts (anything from Corsair, Be quiet, Seasonic, Enermax or models with 80+ certificates from other brands - don't save on the PSU!)
CPU cooler: look at ones with a larger fan (12cm+) and lower rpm to avoid noise
Case: the cheapest compatible
If you would like to play modern games and/or CF at higher resolutions, this is where you can invest additionally:
- 4-core CPU with the highest clock speed (not necessary for CF, only for new games)
- 8 GB RAM (also not needed for CF)
- best graphics card you can afford
Hope this helps!
thank you wanderer I much appreciate this as I don't that much about specs and comparability to be honest as there forever changing lol
is gtx 780Ti anygood for this rig?
Sure, this card will run CF smoothly even in 4K (3840x2160) I think, although its memory (3GB) might not be enough for modern games at high settings.
Also, remember that it needs a power supply with two PCIe 6-8 pin connectors (not common with 400W models - you'll have to choose from higher wattage ones).
Ahh I see okay mate thanks 😊
