4870X2, because i7 works with multiple cards, and doesn't bottleneck.

so i could get one and then get another down the line, and run them in crossfire, and then get a 3rd one when the new cards come and and prices drop LOL

i could run 3 way crossfire.....

how fast would that be 3x4870x2?

what do you think i could get with farcry 2 or crysis ALL very high 16 AA?

with the 3 4870x2 crossfire X?
