GL, because the Biostar can OC that thing over 6.0GHz, and the GX2 is a power whh0re, and the 4850 is almost better, and 4850 in is waaayyy better.

I think his exaggerating, but with a good chip (E0 Stepping), and decent air cooling. You should be able to achieve an over clock of 4.00ghz. Actually the E8*** series are almost all guaranteed an over clock of 4.00ghz or more.

I would have gotten the 4870 but, I will probably want to do SLI in the future

There really is no reason to go 9800 GX2 SLI. Considering you already have 2 GPU's and that neither SLI or CrossFire fair well after 2 or 3 GPU's.

CrossFire MSI 4850's in my future though

So I should get my current setup and crossfire 4850s. Is that better than one 4870

Please link me what kind of 4850 is best for price ( newegg )

Your motherboard supports SLI not crossfire. So you'd have to get a motherboard which supported crossfire first.

These are worth every penny

Newegg.com - MSI R4850-512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Edit: Spit Wad is right a single 4870 or 9800 GX2 would be enough for gaming. Even Crossfire 4850's are over kill.

Just look for one that supports CrossFire

Newegg.com - Intel P45, LGA 775, Intel Motherboards, Motherboards, Computer Hardware

Such as this Biostar

Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
