I have a 4850 1gb card at the moment, I just brought the LANPARTY JR P45-T2RS that enables me to crossfire my card.
Was thinking what do you guys think is best?
Option 1 Buy another 48501gb card and X fire on my motherboard (although i read that with my motherboard it will share 16 lanes between the 2 cards (bear with me i'm a bit of a noobie on this) - Will there be any deterioration in performance?
Option 2 Ebay my existing 4850 1gb card then buy a 4850 X2 1 gb (price differential between that and a 4850 1gb is 30GBP (which I'm hoping will be made up by ebaying my old card)

4850x2 scales better, takes up less space and while a hot card doesn't pump out as much as 2 single cards.
So I would say 4850x2.
actually...since you already have one, I would think Xfire them performance should be a little lower though, but it'll be cheaper but if you have time and money, 4850x2 is the way to go
