decisions decisions..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello all, looking to buy a new vid card for my sig rig below, (thank you stimulus check ) anyways ill be selling my 8800gt 512 and using that to cut the price a little too, anyways i was considering either crossfiring a couple of 4850's or perhaps just getting a single 4870, so that eventually i could get another when the need finally arose, either way, it looks like im definately going ati this generation. any ideas on what i should go with here? or possibly a link to some benchmarks or something? basically i know what cards have come out recently, but know very little about them and the community here has always been great at helping me in the past.

I'd say go with the single 4870 for now. Since you only have a 22" monitor, it will be PLENTY to run all of your games for now. You should wait until you get a bigger monitor later on, and then you can get a second 4870 and really roll.
