I was just wondering what would be a better set up( crossfire hd 3850s or 8800gt), since they are the same price.
Hd 3850- 2 x 150each
8800gt - 280 range

Thanks

read that before...nuthing on crossfire config...but thanks anywayz....
Is it true that crossfire takes up some of the memory on the cards and so some games need that memory and framerates are sometimes below single card.

I do believe that every benchmark shows the existance of a crossfired card and a single card, I also believe it shows thjat in a majority of cases, the crosffired cards destroy an 8800Ultra....did you click past the first page? lol

and I have never heard that about the memory, not saying your wrong, but I havn't heard about it. lol
