    the 4870 is more like gtx 260 performance so two 4870 in crossfire are better than a gtx 285 if it scales well.

    But why would you want to go dual gpu with something like the 285 or equivalent ? when you can get a gpu like the gtx 560 ti or 6950 for example and don't have to worry about crossfire problems?

    I don't have the money for that so im trying to crossfire cheap cards to get better performance.

    Im about to trade this card for 4890 1gb vapor-x toxic.

    2 x 4890 in x-fire will be pretty good compared to a single 285. Guess you can find a 2nd 4890 for around 60-80$.
