That seems like a pretty high end card already what can it not do? Ive never heard of multi graphics cards performing all that much better than a single card and can be potentially problematic or issues that make it not worth doing.
I can't play Far Cry 3 with it turned full blast. There are other games I want to get soon too. I want to be able to see all the detail now and into the future. Right now it's a theoretical discussion.
Right now I can't run FC3 full blast and I want to see the top shelf settings. My monitor has 2 HDMI inputs so theoretically each card will work half the space being able to give that much more detail. Is that correct?
You get a little cable that connects the two video cards internally. You still only connect one HDMI cable to your monitor. Depending on the game and depending on the iteration of video driver, you can get anywhere from no noticeable difference to almost double the frame rate at any given quality setting.
You may want to Google how this particular game responds to your particular card in Crossfire. Geeks love talking about this shit on geeky forums.
You can probally upgrade your cpu and ram. That's most likely where your bottle neck is. If your ram and cpu aren't fast enough to keep up with your video card it's like putting a turbo charger in a pinto. You might get a slight boost but not as much as you would with a new engine and exhaust to go along with it.
A second card would cost $250, but how good is your power supply? Also Ram prices have started to climb and expected to not go down either, thanks to smart phone demand, so you better get that Ram quick. The days of cheap ram are over.
About 5 years ago I bought a cheap Korean monitor that was supposed to be awesome for $300. It was such a shabby unit (Hanns G, maybe?). I bought a Dell 28" for more than double and the picture difference was stunning. I still use the Dell.
I'm loathe to jump on these "totally awesome monitor for the price" trends but this one does look promising.
