7850 Crossfire or 280x

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I picked up the 2 7850s less than a month ago. I can still return them for refund minus restocking fee and shipping. They scored over 13k in 3dmark11 at 1050/1300 for graphics.

I think I want to pick up a 280x. I know it will be slower in games that support crossfire but better with the ones that do not.

SO MANY CHOICES! LOL!

Well was there a reason you didn't buy a 7970 and got the 7850s instead? Because that's basically what your getting when you buy a new 280x....

The price after promo code and rebates(which I haven't sent in yet) was too good to pass up at the time. They were 149.99 after rebate and then 12% off each card. So in the end they were 130 each. I had always wanted to try a crossfire setup as well. Its the one thing I haven't done yet.
