Yeah I know, but what do I care, I'll be getting the new 9600GT series before long. Not that its a great card or anything, but it'll be able to handle whatever I can throw at it (which really isn't that much). Still though I can run Crysis on medium-high (with mixed settings) unlike the 256mb ones. So that extra 256mb of ram doesn't go to waste.


Interesting the HD 2600XT is also 512MB at GDDR3 and still rated lower then my 512MB GDDR2.

hd3870x2 isn't Crossfire

its a Dual-GPU Card (two Chips on 1 PCB) and its better than an 8800Ultra in performance and over $200 cheaper

not to nitpick...but it does implement crossfire internally, but it's effectively 1 GPU as it fits into 1 slot

I'm not saying its not Crossfire Compatible, but Gabb was thinking its two HD3870's but I'm trying to say I'm talking about the Dual GPU one

the 3870X2 is a a great card but horrible to crossfire.

so many people have gone through problems and plus the performance benifit is barely nothing.
