You make a good point.

It does now see smarter to just stop using the graphics portion of my apu and dish out some more cash for a better card altogether. Thanks for the suggestion.

My understanding of crossfire is....

If the motherboard support it then any similar graphic card will work. So the answer is yes. But as Robert pointed out one card will be better than 2 unless you only need to buy one because you already have the other one. In other word, one $200 card will be better than 2 $100 card (most likely).

My takeaway is that getting a great DDR5 card wins over trying the make crossfire work.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
