2 4670s < 4850?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Was wondering. Built a system for a buddy and he's thinking about adding another 4670 for better framerates. I told him he should have gotten the 4850 originally but he was being cheap. I say sell it and get a 4870 to replace it and be done with it.

Not without 100% scaling and massive overclocks. Check my sig for a single HD4670 vs. HD4850. The 4670 doesnt even come close. And yes, I read the article.
