Thanks for the quick reply Hardwood,
And thanks for the link, been looking for some crossfire reviews. Guess my google skills still need some work! I see you went for the middle ground ehh? Lol I guess you noticed I was worried the 7850s wouldn't be strong enuff and that two 7950s might be overkill in a bad way (cost and performance that I may not put to good use)?
Anyway I originaly intended to watch this thread for at least a week before getting anything but.......... I been watching prices on newegg like a hawk watches a chicken. Ended up ordering two of these.
Yeah I know they're only OCed by 50mhz on the gpu but at $330 they are $20 lower than the ref clocked model and one of the least expensive on newegg atm. Not to mention free shipping, the mail in rebate, and that I was already leaning toward Sapphire this time.
So here's a Newcastle hopefully my second crossfire will run as well as my first.
