Default How does this perform and um? WTF!?

Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS EAH3850X2/HTDI/1G Dual Radeon HD 3850 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card


I was just looking through some open box deals and then i splurged coffee onto my monitor, i thought it said 4850x2, but still..

how does this 3850x2 perform? The price aint bad if it outperforms maybe a 4850. I doubt it will though :/

i don't think it can considering the 4850 has more SP's then both 3850's combined..it was returned for a reason

Not so great... Wasn't there supposed to be a X3 version of it? or was that just a joke?

Most games are suited better for nVidia cards, so in most of those games it performs like one HD 3850
