i would get the x1950xt best card from ati right now besides the 2900xt. and the x1950xt will be better than the 1950pro.

but y do u want cross fire, u would be better of getting a 8800gts 320 or something for the money

i already have the crossfire dfi lanparty board, and yes nvidia might be better, but not by enough to make me wanna sell everything and re-buy. anyway, my budget is pretty much $200 so ive looked around and it looks like these are my only options

For that price, you can get the Sapphire X1950XT, for less than both those cards...and it pwns them both as well.

you can run an nvidia card on a crossfire board man
you cant run two nvidia cards on a crossfire board but you can one

both SLI and croosfire are waste

for 200 bucks just get a x1950xt
