I am building a new pc I have xfx295 which I got last week I am thinking of runing them in quad It would be hard to sell..... but maybe its possible if I can trade for an 5870 and get another 1 and crossfire em and its possible I can buy another 295 xfx.
I am looking for the fastest fps on i920 set up I searched for reviews but all put single 295 against it to compare. My current system q6600 3.2 oc 4gb 1066 and some crap hdd and 800 w psu and vista 32 bit.
Some or most games run 30 - 90 fps on 1920x1080. The new system will have ulitmate installed on it 64 bit.
suggestion thoughts let me know which set up is faster.

Driver and game support for quad SLI is dire at best even regular 2 way SLI/Crossfire support isn't all that great so if I were you I would go with 2 HD5870's.

The HD5870 is more future proof in terms of DirectX 11 but performance wise your swapping like for like. Personally I think it would be a good move in the long term but short term you won't see much benefit.
