brutus, i didn't even report you. Someone else did...lol
Oooh that card is sexy. CHecked newegg and its 469....a bit pricey though I don't know if i wanna spend that much! lol the 5850 sounds more economical. or the 2x 5770's. Not sure...hmm. Oh yeah, any particular brand I should go with when i make a decision. I really don't want a visiontek since that one went fubar on me!

The 5870's are pretty much on par with the 4870 x2's and even beats it in some stuff Im pretty sure.
If you really want to keep it under 300 have a look at the 5850's they aren't much of a loss from the 4870 x2 and are a little cheaper.
a little update: got a response from RMA. They are requesting the receipt for the vid card i have and are saying that it sounds like it is indeed defective. Hopefully I can just RMA this one and get a replacement!! Maybe ill still buy another card and crossfire it! haha that would be beastly!
Can you do that though? crossfire two different types of cards?
