Yeah. So many games are benefiting. It's going to become the standard eventually, when games get more demanding.

The 4850 crossfire beats a single 4870 is most cases and performs similar to the 4870 crossfire in most games.
According to those reviews the 4850 CF gets CRUSHED by the 4870 CF only looks like 2 games they are comparable but most games is beat by 20+ FPS... At 50 bucks more for the pair like I said I would get the single 4870 now and get the CF later. If you are already planning to get the 4870 now you might as well get rid of the 4850 and get 2 of em...

What size monitor are you running? It's not worth it to go SLI for a smaller size monitor.

Basically, E3110 = E8400. It's the E8400 in "Xeon" or server form. Identical in every way except it's supposed to be cherry picked.

For 1680x1050 (22"), it's not worth it, a single HD 4850 or HD 4870 will be fine. I'm running 1920x1600 with an HD 4850.
