What'd you spent it on? And 4870 cf performs the same as a single 4870x2. englandr753 a b U Graphics card August 16, 2008 3:33:37 AM Hopefully that upgrade consisted of a 50" lcd tv on the wall. 2k on an upgrade is more than 90% of any single computer out there. Please give us the details on that because you have me so curious it hurts... xsever August 16, 2008 3:51:12 AM This should be very helpful! http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/1548/single_hd_4870_x2_vs_two_hd_4870s_on_p45/index.html georgep001 August 16, 2008 8:57:01 PM my system has changed i now have a 4870x2 crossfired with a 4870 thx for the feedback but im happy now with my 4870x2 cf with a 4870 Can't find your answer ?
