So your meaning that a 4850CF wouldn't show a noticeable performance increase from a single card. The reason I mentioned benches was because, every year there is a competition that takes place called Forum Wars, different forums take part, users overclock and push their systems to the limit and then do benchmarks.
I don't have any plan of uping my monitor, just me and I love my eyes, don't wanna mess them. Thanks Sugar
NO. The 4850 crossfired almost doubles the single 4850 framerates. Take another look at SKYMTL's crossfire review.
I was just saying - single 4870 - $275, room to upgrade, 4850x2 - $325, no room to upgrade, GTX280, $450ish, can't upgrade on crossfire board. Of the 3, the absolute fastest would probably be the 2x4850's. But you won't notice the difference between 75 and 100 FPS on your 19" when your LCD refreshes at 60FPS.
I get you Sugar. Is there a big difference in games and benches btw the 4870 and a 4850CF, because yes we should be looking at more to upgrade, but the amount of cash I have, just looking to put it towards a good board (Biostar I45), video card, and hard drives. I am trying not to add anything more until X58 is officially launched and released, that time will need serious cash.
