Hi,

am looking at purchase of a second video card and would like to know if this game has support for CrossfireX.

If so is it native or do people need to force the setting?

Are the results decent?

I'd prefer to get a cheap card rather than upgrading to more capable single card :)

Well the as long as the card is better than the minimum requirements, (Shader Model 3.0 GeForce 6800GT with 256 MB of RAM / ATI X800 with 256 MB RAM, DirectX 9.0c) then it should be fine.

I would advise AGAINST crossfire. Both ATI's and Nvidias duel GPU solutions have sucked for many years and MOST games out STILL don't fully utilize dual GPU performance gains. As a user of two HD4870's and played almost ALL the latest and greatest games, I have seen and documented NO performance gains other than maybe a +5 frames per second on Empire Total war on most of the games out.

Save the cash, go single card.

Also on a side note, on most motherboards (excluding any extreme crap) it may say it has two X16 slots, when two cards are placed in the motherboard, they are both run at X8 speed instead of just one X16 speed.

There is no official support at this time. I asked Overlord during the closed beta and he said it was something they would try to implement in the future. I have a 4870X2 and a 4870 doing a whole lot of nothing. So save your money or purchase the best single card you can.

If starting from scratch then get the best single card you can. If you have a card already and can get a decent to cheap price on a second it may be worth it. But be warned there is typically headaches with dual cards, not always but sometimes you have to wait on better drivers as well. One last thing you need to have a good PSU to power them both, which costs more money.
