Weird...I definitely have, even with V7

Just a quick note, as of the newest patch (8.4) SLI support has apparently been brought back. I have no way to test for myself though.

Will have to check that out. Would be nice to know that after all this time without I can get SLI support.

[QUOTE=enaberif;698974]How would this card fare against say a 560ti?

I think if you check Anandtech benchmarks you'll find the 7850 beating the 560 Ti in most games shown, other than BF3 and Portal 2. It doesn't kick the 560 Ti too badly but seems to win out in most of the titles benched.

With my current 260 on the way out, picked up one of these from EVGA to tide me over til I can step up to a GTX 670. Sky, thanks for all your reviews, they do help in deciding things.
