  1. Take a look at the graphics stats :

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/charts/gaming-graphics-cards-charts-2009-high-quality/benchmarks,64.html

    and this:

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/radeon-hd-5870,review-31685-22.html

    e.g.:

    "... the card still dominates the hardware it’s being put up against. The board consistently beats Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 285, trades blows with the Radeon HD 4870 X2, and is sometimes able to sneak past the GeForce GTX 295."
  2. I.e. what you spending all that cash for now? Wait 6 months.
  3. Performance test benchmarks look at it.

    also, keep in mind when u crossfire 2 cards it draws alot of power, takes up ALOT of space, run very hot, and cost alot more.
