HELP! Should I buy a 3870x2? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I placed an order for the HIS 4870 for $316.98 from TD. Can't wait!

On a side note, Age of Conan is effin sweet! I didn't wait for the new card so now when it comes I'll be able to enjoy the difference.

I still think the power consumption of 2 in CF is much higher than just an X2 because your PSU has to power 2 completely separate cards. In an X2, some of the circuitry would be redundant if they COMPLETELY put both cards into 1, so it saves power.
