I was reading the System Builder Marathon, Sept. '09: $650 Gaming PC Article, and I noticed the graphics card, which uses a Crossfire configuration was no longer available.

You can see the article here:,2424-...

Video card on Newegg here:

My question is, can you recommend an alternative Crossfire or Single video card configuration that would produce similar performance?

Any 2 HD4850 in crossfire would have similar performance. I personally prefer single card solutions the HD4870 has a good price now and is very good up to 1920x1080 resolution, for little more money the new HD5770 can be had, new technology and almost as fast as hd4870.
