hey i was wondering if crossfire/SLI if better than just upgrading a single graphic card.
i currently have the 4870 512mb (my motherboard does not support crossfire or sli )
would you guys recommend getting a new motherboard and then crossfiring? or should i just stay with my current motherboard and save up for a really good graphic card not yet released. im sure my power supply can handle any single card that will come out
Asus M4A78 Pro
OCZ Reaper 4gb 1066mhz ram
Powercolor 4870 512mb
*G.Skill 4gb ddr2 800 @954mhz
*Intel Core2Quad q6600 @ 3.6ghz
*Antec TwelveHundred full tower case
*Silverstone 700w modular striker series
*ZEROtherm Nirvana cpu cooler
*Power Color Ati 4870 1gb ddr5 edition (800core/1090memory)
*ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner

I'm waiting for a 5xxx or 3xxx ati/nvidia cards to come out.
Upgrade something when u really dont get the performance u need from it.
For now HD 4870 is pretty good and u are happy with it too,when it started to struglle in games or other things that u need,then that would be a good time for upgrading
