awwww snap. 5850x2 vs 5870 OCED. y dunt u get a 5970?
It doesn't fit into my case.
Umm, i think you should't have any problem with Crysis on Very High 4x or 8x AA @ 16x10 and 19x10 with the 5850, especially when OC'ed:)
I checked benchmarks and two 5850s got an average of 40fps on VeryHigh with x4 AA. A single 5850 was around the mid 20s, which is unplayable since the min frame rate would dip into the teens.
A single 5870 was only in the low 30's at 1080p and VH, x4 AA, which is barely playable.
OCed, it would probably be a 10% improvement, so it'd be still almost unplayable.
So I wasn't sure whether to spend ~$280 today and maybe $200-250 in the future (price drop) to get 2x5850s to play Crysis at 1080p maxed with great fps, or ~$365 and play Crysis at 1680x1050 maxed with decent/good fps.
