Probably should just go with the flow and keep what came in the mail from Newegg
I already did a last minute change and went from 8500 Dual Core to a 9550 Quad Core
Not even sure if I will get another 4870x2 at this point. Gonna have to buy a larger monitor (I am hearing 28-20") anyway to make quad Crossfire worth the effort. I do not want to have a "nuclear reactor" PSU if I do not really need it. On the other hand, I do want the room if I choose to add the second GPU.
I am not sure if I have seen any benchmarks on quad Crossfire with two 4870x2 GPU's. Any link on a benchmark for this set up?
I suspect, the FPS gain would not be that much over the one 4870x2 GPU to notice any difference.
