Are these good cards to crossfire?

Thinking about getting a pair of these and crossfiring, I only have x4 crossfire though. Is powercolor a good brand?

Powercolor is a solid brand.
They arent MSI or ASUS for a reason, but they make a decent card and support it fairly well.

Doesn't NCIX (Canada) have the Sapphire Xtreme 5850 for the identical price for another hour or two? They scale very well in crossfire. My bad, sorry, too late.

I'm never buying sapphire again. MSI all the way.

you can get a single 6950 for about the same as two of those and get better performance i'd think
