Done!

These cards scale very well in crossfire. Latest benchmarks show two of these outperform a HD 5970, a card costing 400 quid!

dirky

gonna get hot here.



It probably won't. It's from Pixmania, people on here are pretty biased against them as a retailer

true some ppl might not like retailer, but if you get the product at a good price in a good time whats to worry??

and they are very good in crossfire.

Actually, your benchmarks don't show the performance of this card at all. The core clock is only 725mhz whilst the stock AMD is 775mhz, and as your suggesting crossfiring them, then overclocking is also going to be limited.

Also, 50mhz is a big chunk of performance loss, if you get lucky and do push it to 800mhz great, but that's still a gamble.

Thanx Haven't really noticed that. I just wanted to give some comparison.

Good price, bad retailer.
