Need help for choosing video card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm building a new rig with a Core 2 Duo E6400 but I still don't know if I'll go crossfire or not.

I have a great deal right now at my local PC store : I have the choice between a X1900XT 256Mb or a X1950 Pro in crossfire.
I don't have any experience with crossfire yet and I wonder if the single card solution is better or not.

I have a 20.1 widescreen LCD display at 1680x1050 resolution.
My games are GTR, GTR2, GTLegends, Race, rFactor, Far Cry, Oblivion, Splinter Cell.

Thanks for your help.

crossfire is alright. i honestly don't feel its a necessity, specially if you can get a x1900xt or a x1950xt. they are both cards that can handle themselves with pretty good results.
