You can get 2 5870s for 400 bucks.




I wouldn't get that unless it was 700 bucks AND still came with the free 300 dollar motherboard.

That's not a good price and it's not worth it.

If anyone bought one of these things it would be because they have entirely TOO MUCH money to waste & didn't know enough about managing money, nor computer, to be considered even remotely informed financially or technically speaking..

get 2 of those and crossfire them, better yet, get three and Tri-fire, why not quadfire? your e-peen would grow tremendously, and your bank account would go into the red in the process.
