hey,

I was wondering wether t would be good to get a HD4830 now and later on add another one. DO you think it is worh it?

I am planning to do this on the Asus P5K-V motherboard (have no other option in my country). The thin is that the P5K-V runs at 8X-8X link in crossfire. Will this affect performance alot (more than 5 FPS or less?).

Nah you'll be fine with 8x-8x. With everything else, it depends on the price. The 4830 is a good and underrated card, but you might still be able to pick up a 4870 512mb for cheaper than two of them and that's around the same performance level.

actually i wil by them at different times and if i sell the hd4830 and add some money i can get the HD4870 I-chill for the same price as two HD4830s. So what should I opt for? Also if I choose to get the HD4870 I wont be able to upgrade my Asus P5KPL-VM.

they both give similar performance, go with the card that gives you the better extras you want (i.e, price, games, warranty, etc.,)
