With a crossfire'd 1gb card do you get 2GB of memory? So, you can like have double the amount of screens??

Nope. What's the 2nd Q again?

You get two cards that can process twice as much however each card is still limited to the 1GB of memory, so memory intensive games will still cause problems to crossfire/sli set ups

So 2GB card vs 1gb+1gb in xfire 2GB still has better memory.. I seeeee.

well, lets take the 6850 1gb in crossfire. the pair packs quite a punch, but then pit it against its slghtly
bigger brother 2gb 6950,itll wil at most resolutions, but when you crank all that you can wayy high? well,itll get closer :)

Yeah, you get a benefit from the 1+1 GB on each card, but nothing like CF scaling... the benefit is there, but so small that you just can't replace 2GB with 1+1 and expect to crank up the AA as much.
