crossfireing sapphire x850xt and ati Xfire x850xt possible?
My current system specs don't really apply here, as im going to get a new computer. I needed a lower cost graphics solution, so i decided to not get an X1K series card, and im an ATI buff, so crossfire is what i want, so i decided two x850xt's will do fine. Problem: i can only purchase a Sapphire x850xt and an ATI crossfire x850xt. Despite the two different brands, will the two crossfire? I would tend to think so, but i want to be sure before i blow $500.
I know everyone says SLi owns, but i like ATI (that and i love red lol) and i think ATI's crossfire will go farther than SLi for some reason. Crossfire is a better phrase then Scalable Link Interface anyway.
for anyone who cares i guess, you can have my sys specs.

You can get a X1900XT for $530, or a X1800XT for $480, either of which will cost less than 2x850's.
Ya...i figured that much like 10min after i wrote that...i was just really liking the idea of dual gfx cards, and not thinking economically.
