APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Today BUDGET RANGE: 150-200 USD

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. A lot of graphics-intensive games.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Sapphire 5850 Vapor-X and Corsair HX850

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Asus P6T-SE i7-930 @ 3.8 Ghz. 6GB Corsair XMS C9

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: amazon.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Singapore

PARTS PREFERENCES: Sapphire 5850 Xtreme

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

So i'm running a Sapphire HD 5850 Vapor-X right now, and would like a little more juice. I'd like to buy the 5850 Xtreme and Crossfire it. Is it worth it? Or am I better off selling the 5850 i have now and buying a newer card altogether?

Since I'm living in Singapore, and I can't find the card anywhere in shops here, I'm thinking of buying it from amazon and shipping it over. It costs me 165 USD to ship it here.

I would recommend you get another 5850 Vapor-X so you have two cards of the same speed with the same BIOS (if they aren't using the same BIOS version then update them) to minimize any issues ^_^
