That would do aswell. Anything to cool that badboy down though. I would hate to have that heat in my system.

More input on this? So far it looks like 4850, No 9800GTX+ reviews/fanbois?

4850 would be better for 2 reasons
1. You motherboard
2. xfire scales well with this card.

While I prefer Nvidia AIB partners(BFG, EVGA, XFX), it's hard to argue with the 4850s performance... My only beef with the card is it's stock cooling solution, So I'd recommend 4850 and a new cooler to go with it since they run hot when OC'd. Though if you're in no rush it might not hurt to wait till mid-late July to see what the 9800gtx+ and 4870 offer in terms of performance and price(not to mention their affect on the price of other cards).

I dunno, is 512MB GDDR3 really enough or worthwhile for CF? I read through Mascaras review over @ XS and he commented on observing some MS(Micro-stuttering) in game when CF'd...

1st level of Crysis didnt noticed any stutering at all in Crossfire mode , however in last level i noticed few breaks/stuttering (example : when runing down the stairs inside the ship or passing the ship doors ) !

Beside the first and last Crysis levels i didnt tested any other levels yet !
Personally I won't even consider CF/SLI an option until I know more about micro-stuttering. I don't want 90FPS with random micro-breaks/stutters, nor do I want the added cost of running CF if a single 4870 would get the job done.

The 4850 in Crossfire performs similar or better than the GTX 280 IIRC. Both Crossfire and SLI have microshuttering because of Alternate Frame Rendering. Most people don't notice it and if they say they do then theres a chance thats it is the Placebo effect.

Yea I've never really noticed any MS myself......however that really doesn't mean anything.

HD4850 for it's price, overclocking potential, CF scaling and the fact that it's ATI.

EDIT: Also, ATI's drivers increase performance much more than NVidia's. The HD4850 will only get better, also, a hotfix was released very recently that fixes a few bugs and drops the temps a whole bunch
