That's what I m saying lol. That's why I m going for the crossfire 4830's instead of the single 4870. Because games will look so **** BEAUTIFUL all maxed out. It doesn't even matter that not all games support crossfire. Its worth it just to have EVERYTHING maxed out on the games that do support crossfire. For the ones that don't I can always go medium and get rid of some af. Its like a sacrifice.

Crossfire 4830s are excellent value.

Finally some one who agrees with me In games that DO support crossfire 4830's out perform the GTX 280

Last I remember the 4870 did not.....

Also Gurusan remember that I m shopping newegg Canada. So the cheapest 4850 is $220 right now. While the cheapest 4830 is about $170~. Something in me just doesn't find it worthwhile to spend over $400+ on a Crossfire set up.
