Right now I have a single 3870 (Diamond Viper) and am wondering if any here have used a regular 3870 with a 3870x2 in trifire. I am only looking for a cheap way to get high fill rates (pixel and texture) as for shader my needs are simple and on a limited budget. No I do not want any of the 57x0 series and can't afford any thing over $100. Note I may not be able to purchase till later in the year.
