yes, get a crossfire board........great advice.

first off, as everyone already mentioned, SLI and Xfire is a waste of money. Secondly if u ARE going to SLi or Xfire, wtf would u do Xfire? SLi is way better. Thirdly, if u are going to SLi why wouldnt u get a DFI Lanparty UT Ultra-D, all u need is a dull pencil and BAM u got SLi.

Dwayne good choice on the DFi Lanparty, dont forget to post pics and benchmarks.

sapphire has 512 as well...


and sapphire only had 3 reviews was cuz ppl were buying the OEM and not the retail.. and the OEM has more and better reviews than the ATI.. the sapphire retail is also a good $20 cheaper than ati.


in the end its irrelevant cuz they all rock!!

I hate it when people say that SLi is so much better than xfire especially when they dont back it up with any reasons. Can u justify this argument? Just because SLi is more known than xfire doesnt make it any better. and considering ATI has the best card out at the moment then xfire is currently better than SLi.

Ok then, why dont you justify that Crossfire is better then SLI. Just because they have the crown for best card doesnt mean their crossfire does better then SLI

I never said it did, did i? exactly. whereas john3 obviously thinks SLi is better. I dont know any bad things about them really they both are good. The only reason i prefer crossfire is because you can use 2 different cards so you dont have to fork out a load of money at one time.
