My System Specs

However, so the situation is that I'm using a single Nvidia XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition with 512MB or Video RAM, however, I'm looking for a ATI Crossfire configuration for my motherboard, instead of using SLI mode for the board because of the Intel Chipset limited support issue. So, what is everyones suggestion to a great Video card from ATI that would be able to play Crysis and other high end games at max settings, I'm thinking of the ATI Radeon 2900HD series, a certain model or manufacture would be greatly appreciate to direct me into the right direction upon making the purchase thank you forum readers.
That's last year's tech....

If you're looking for a card you might Xfire with have a look at the 3870 series. There's even a X2 now (we've got a review on our front page) which has two GPUs on the same board rather than the previous method of joining two full cards together for a single card sli/Xfire solution.

HIS ICEQ3 series has pretty damn good non-reference cooling, but that will only matter if you don't intend to replace the cooling with an after-market solution.
EVGA X58 3X SLI / i7 980X / 3X 4G Mushkin Blackline Frostbite / XFX Pro 1000W / EVGA GTX 680 SC+ 2GB / Intel DC S3700 200G / WD 6401AALS / TT Lvl 10 GT
