And for some reason, an nVidia enthusiast will claim it somehow isn't good because it's a dual chip solution. Never mind awesome performance. Never mind better price/performance ratio. It won't be better because it isn't single chip.

Who honestly believes BS like that?

This is awesome!

The 4850 @ stock appears to have the same power as a heavily OC'd 8800GT - This is great news for ATI, especially since the price is oh so low!

The HD4870 will be immense in my opinion - Seriously considering going X38 incase i wanna crossfire a few of these
