First of all, that board is an SLI board and cannot do crossfire without modified motherboard drivers. Second, even if you were to run two 4550s in crossfire the performance would still be too low to play the game on anything above low settings.

^Well o.k, you could probably do low-med at something like 1024x768 with two 4550s

it runs pretty good with some gamer and mainstream settings with one of these video cards r4550 at 1280 by 720 res setting a bit choppy but its not what i had in mind
will a sappher 3850 512 with 256 bit memory work better i have this one as a spare??
