But yes crossfire should be a little better but really it's the cards u run it with that matter.
true, but i think most of our expectations of the r580 is to beat the 7800 gtx. i guess what i was trying to get at, is with ati crossfire giving you more peformance increase when using 2 cards, using 2 x850xt pe may very well be better then 2 7800 gtx's, even though one 7800 gtx is better then one x850 xt pe.
. And thanks for not flipping out on me and going, "0mg n0 w4y nvidia pwnz0r5 t3h sh*** 0u7 0f ati!". lol. But i find the whole idea of the x850 xt pebeing worse then the 7800gtx,
but two x850xt pe's possibly being better thentwo 7800gtx's. Anyways, back on topic
Wait, if you want to go dual gpus (graphics cards/graphic processing unit), definitly wait the 4 months, crossfire will be out by then and you can make an educated decision of wether or not you may want to go sli or crossfire.and the releasing of new cards many times makes other cards prices drop, so you'll probably want to wait for that. in the end you'll save money and trouble.
