Thread Starter 
Crossfire. I know that. Read what I mean not what I type will ya.

Well, guess thats good news. Now I gotta save the $ to get it. It will beyond a doubt be the best card I ever bought. I usually go with the best of the mid-range cards. 66ooGTX, 76ooGT , 88ooGT.

Thanks all. Now I rep+

I've got an E8400, Abit IP35-E (1 pci-e slot) and 2 GB of Crucial Ballistix. Will an Epower 500W psu power a 4870x2? It's powered my current system fine with an X1800xt 256mb.

i know that but that is not what i am asking, there is three types of pci-express 1, 1.1, 2.0

which means my question is asking if the pci-express type would bottleneck the card

No, a pci-e 2.0 card can work fine on a 1.0 or 1.1 slot.

Supposedly there is a small performance drop in crossfire with 2.0 cards on 1.x slots. However since this card is a x2 you don't have to worry about that performance drop since the cores communicate with each other on the same card.
