In terms of cards from this generation an HD3870x2 is approximately equal to an HD5770 while the crossfired HD4850s will be on par with an HD5850. outlw6669 a b U Graphics card June 28, 2010 9:11:53 AM As a single 4850 performs about the same as your current 3870x2 (a bit faster with AA, a hair slower without), a pair will totally destroy it. Defiantly a worthy upgrade, just be sure your PSU is up to the task before installing. megamanx00 a c 106 U Graphics card June 28, 2010 5:40:06 PM Use the two 4850s, game, be happy wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card June 29, 2010 1:43:10 AM ^+6 Can't find your answer ?
