Yea, it'll be pretty much the same at 1680*1050 - you're only going to see a difference at 1920*1200/2560*1600

Its too bad you didn't wait though, the 4870x2 is a better value, ah well.

$2k for an upgrade? What'd you spent it on? :sweat: 

And 4870 cf performs the same as a single 4870x2.

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...
