his probably only considering the price for 2 4850s
GTX 295 or hd 4870x2 pwns thse 100%
Once again...no kidding.
You guys are comparing DUAL
GPU cards to single GPU cards of LOWER CLASS
in Crossfire. Of course a damn 4870
X2 is going to beat 4850
's in crossfire. The GTX295 and 4870X2 are NOT
SINGLE GPU CARDS.
Not to mention ALL of this is irrelevant. Hes asking about a GTX 280 or 4850s.
