That would be great, but too expensive. Besides, this isn't a gaming rig... if it had been, I would have gone with FX or X2, not Opteron. It's more for workstation, but I'm a Halo/Doom3/F.E.A.R. fan, so a good video card would be nice. Crossfire's are $500 a piece... if I was to get one, which of these should I get? I might even consider them, and after looking at the price of NVIDIA Quadro's, Crossfire's are nothing, price-wise .
