Default 4850 X-Fire or 4850 Watercooled?!

okay, so my options are here... i've already ordered 1 4850.... and i plan on volt modding of course....

so what seems better... a voltmodded watercooled single 4850... or 4850 crossfire?!?!

opinions please...

i'm leaning toward 4850 watercooled for the meantime... see how that performs.. and if it ain't enough.. then 4850 crossfire watercooled later on

You know the rule bro, screw the CPU's speed and just have the GPU's own

Worse come to worse, you can go 4.0ghz+ on an e7200

I doubt that 4850s in crossfire can be bottlenecked by a e7200. The oc ability can put it on par with an e8500 in some cases.

It's got the same multiplier as an e8500.. I wouldn't be too worried
