Well worth the money. Pay attention to the people above me on the mobo, running a cf on a 16/4 connection is not at all recommended and you will not see a good performance increase for the second card. Another concern, is the psu you picked out enough to run cf with two 6850's along with what else you have. I don't know, but those are some suggestions you can ask these fine people here. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
