    If you find it stating to struggle just chuck another one in for Crossfire that's what I did

    I can play skyrim at 1920x1080 with everything on highest settings and it runs smooth as silk and with the 12.4's I just tried MLAA 2.0 and wow very nice

    i got 2x 6850s that im not using, mostly because of BF3...they are getting me like 30-50fps(50%gpu usage on both) on high textures the rest on ultra(except mesh). And i got like 60-70 fps on 1 470gtx(90-98%gpu usage) whats up with that? crossfire/sli configs are starting to piss me off seriously....dont go there...

    Yea, I know. I didn't have issues with SLI or CF. I just got tired of the noise and the heat from running two cards. Other then the spacing on my mobo not being far enough. So one card always was running hotter then the others.

    The only problem i have with Xfire is the lack of support when i game comes out and being unable to record gameplay video with fraps or afterburner...

    i decided to go for my secondary pc...from 2 5850's 1gb(900-1250) to 2 7850's 2gb (1050-1450)...i enjoyed every cent of my upgrade...difference is huge in specific games and it's also smoother to tell the truth...2 generations ahead:)
