This way, you save money by selling the 7850 + the games, avoid the risk of running into various dual-GPU issues (micro-stuttering, CF optimizations etc) and get one of the best bang for the buck deals.

And all that for $150, considering you can sell the 7850 + the games for at least $150.

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

Thanks for the insight
