So I'm putting together my most current rig and I can't wait the few months until AMD drops their new line. I was thinking about toying around with these cheap 4870s in cfx. The only catch is that they're 512mb cards... But they're temporary so who cares right?
Yea, I know my system will run those cards with no problem. The reason why I'm tossing around the idea is because I currently have no video card to run (well, I do, in another comp, but that's my HTPC). Most of the cards around the $100-110 range will get stomped on by even just one of these cards, so I was thinking maybe picking up 2 for cfx. And whenever the new cards DO come out, I could easily sell these for $80 or so (I don't mind, I see it as "renting"), and use that cash towards a 7970 or something of that nature
I just wanted to see if anyone else has experience with these older cards paired with newer components, 'tis all. This could be somewhat of a learning block for me as I've never had dual ATI/AMD cards before, however I have had a dual SLI setup in the past (which is seems to be sort of different).
