What is the difference between these two PC graphics cards? Crossfire setup question inside.
I recently built a new desktop PC for primary use as a gaming machine. It's running this graphics card: XFX HD-695X-CNFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB
If I were to install a second card in crossfire mode, what is the difference between that one and this one: XFX HD-695X-CDFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit
? As far as I can tell, the only difference is that the second one has two fans?
I'm not sure that I want to spend the extra money to upgrade, but I think I'd rather go ahead and do it sooner rather than wait and possibly have difficulty finding the same model card in a year or 18 months How closely should the two cards in a crossfire setup match? Should they be the EXACT same model, or is the same base design close enough?
