Not very good, methinks. The HD3850 is the slowest of the bunch. You spent too much money on the quad-cf mobo, but too little on the video.

so i should purchase the hd3870 instead

I thought you bought the HD3850. If you can get HD3870 or even better HD3870X2, go for it.

that's not just crossfire, though, that's quad crossfire... are you really going to be putting in four graphics cards?
