Ask ! Get the answer djcoolmasterx February 15, 2009 2:15:55 PM GTX 285 has 1GB of frame buffer, 2 4850's will only have 512MB of useable framebuffer. At 1920 x1200 this would become a bottleneck. ben BOys February 15, 2009 2:23:41 PM arr ben BOys February 15, 2009 2:24:25 PM so i really should get the 1gb version spathotan February 15, 2009 2:24:49 PM Two 4850's will give better numbers. They beat any single card/single GPU on the market. Their are also 1GB 4850s. werxen February 15, 2009 7:13:05 PM you sure spath? im pretty sure the gtx295 beats the 4870x2 rescawen February 15, 2009 7:24:56 PM his probably only considering the price for 2 4850s agreed GTX 295 or hd 4870x2 pwns thse 100% spathotan February 15, 2009 9:17:17 PM werxen said:you sure spath? im pretty sure the gtx295 beats the 4870x2 You just mentioned two cards that are NOT single GPU's. Totally irrelevant to my comment. spathotan February 15, 2009 9:18:37 PM rescawen said:his probably only considering the price for 2 4850s agreed 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 4870X2 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. werxen February 16, 2009 1:11:01 AM wow need a chill pill anyone? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
