Default XFX Radeon 5850

i have a radeon 5850....would doubling up on this vid card and crossfiring it really show a dramatic improvement?

my system:

***Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I5750

***CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

***G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model F3-15000CL9D-4GBRH......8 GB total

oh yes, id say you would get a 70% increase in graphic performance. especially if you overclock them and overclock your processor.

a Crossfire 5850 setup is pretty beastly.

Best cost for performance boost you can get in crossfire in my opinion (minus 5970) as Sean said OC those you will be set

No need to be rude and blunt like that, but here: Overclocking, Case Mod, Tweaking PC Performance

Hope you find what you are looking for.
