More about : crossfire performance issue hallowed_dragon a b U Graphics card December 5, 2008 10:39:36 AM I suggest instead of buying a x-fire mobo to sell both your 3870 and buy a 4850 or 4870 card. You will be better served by this setup than those 2 3870. Just my 2 cents area61 December 5, 2008 1:23:23 PM im not stuffed with cash....the only way to get more performance is by getting a cf mobo which is cheap.... Can't find your answer ? Ask !

You arent stuffed with cash, but you are prepared to buy a open box item for $100. Open box items are sent back because the last guy couldnt get it to work. There is a 15 day return on them and 0 exchange. Oh not to mention you wont get the i/o plate or CD or any cables. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
