XFX HD 6850 Crossfire Thougths

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I plan on selling off my evga gtx 465 and getting a pair of XFX HD 6850's dual fan. I wanted to SLI , but my new mobo only supports Crossfire. The cards seem like a pretty decent investment. I would like to hear thoughts on these 2 cards in crossfire.

So would it still be a good idea to crossfire hd 6850 or should I go with a single card. I do plan on unlocking the 2 other cores once I get the mobo and overclock also.
