Sum of FPS Benchmarks 1920x1200

with anti aliasing, 8AA (High Quality) (1920x1200)






Okay it's not exactly the same performance but is an extra 200$ worth dx11 and 30 more fps overall (I'll be playing SC2 mostly in the near future)?

If I sold my 4850 for a realistic price of 50$ that would mean I need 100$ of my own money to grab a 5770 which, based off the sum of fps's gets 152.4.

Without selling the 4850 Ill have to dish out 100$ of my own money for another 4850 to CF and I will get a 40~ fps increase (193.3 fps).

So that 100$ will end up grabbing me an extra 40~ fps in games. I don't have the money right now to grab 2 5770's at once.

See the situation I'm in now?

Maybe with the new Nvidia cards coming out soon that will drop prices on the video cards I want! :)

$50 is not a realistic price to sell a 4850 for. I'd say $90-100 would be more fair.

It will depend on your brand and cap (512/1GB). $50 is crazy low though.
