Default Re: Upgrading my Desktop

Hmm. I noticed the GTX 260 superclocked for about the same price as the 4850 x2. Would you still suggest the 4850 x2?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130433 - GTX 260 Superclocked

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102813 - 4850 x2

either one will be sick

but the 4850x2 setup will take a lot more power and a crossfire compatible board

No, the HD 4850 X2 is a "single card" dual GPU. Not a dual card Crossfire setup.
