4870 CF v ???? - Page 2

Hey just a thought. Why not tri fire some 4870's on that bad boy?
It does help, +REP. Remember that with this Asus rampage III mATX, it only has 2 PCI-E slots. On top of this, the current case, even modded is limited by the length of the video cards. The spare 4870x2 I have will fit inside the case, it goes into the first PCI-E slot, and the back part where the 3x2 pins for power are cleared under the 5" bays. BUT due to the aftermarket heatsink on it, it covers the other PCI-E, so I can't crossfire it with a 4870 I have.

So I went back to the 4870's 1gb in CF, it performs better than the 4870x2. So whatever I decide on, needs to be the 10" cards so they will fit. I believe 6950's in CF would be amazing. Granted that is a little over 500$, and the dual 6970's would be over 650$...
