My friend is building a new computer and we were discussing his GPU possibilities.. he said that he wants to do crossfire with two 2900 HDs, so i told him why not just get a better card because one good card is better than 2 mediocre cards. Also is crossfire more efficient than Sli or reversed or the same? And one more , how what percent of the cards full potentials are actually used with crossfire?
He could always just get a crossfire or sli ready motherboard and buy one really nice card. Then later down the road buy a second one when he has the money and his card is starting to become outdated. Thats what I would do.
I would also go with Nvidia over ATI, but I guess thats personal preference since the two have competing cards that are comparable to one another in several different price ranges.
Karma/rep is always appreciated
