It actually gives 7800GTX SLI'ds a run for their money too! Yikes!
IDK what a crossfire is but it sure kicks *** on benches
I would never buy ati anywho, they're terrible w/drivers
Well, I was looking at the X1900XTX benchmarks for 3Dmark05 & 06 and yes they are very impressive. And do perform as well as (2) 7800Gt's. Yet, the cost is still $600+ per card.

ATI has terrible drivers? um... NVIDIA doesn't have the greatest drivers either.

Cat drivers do suck though. I just use Omega drivers. They work very well for me

i mean they don't update 1/2 as much as Nvidia. I have a geforce 4200 ti and it still kicks because of Nvidias care for they products. ati never seems to update. but honestly i don't think thats an issue for someone buying THAT card...they'd never get to the point where they needed a driver for a performance boost. lol.
