I agree. The benefits of budget cards like this, not unlike the HD5770, is to get two of them and run them in CrossFireX. That means buying a new PSU with 4 x 6 pin connections just to power them?

Ie: More cost.

I have a 4870 512mb, I wonder how much of a performance increase this is, 50% increase would be nice.

I read through this whole thread only to realise on the last pages that it is actually a couple of months old. Bummer.
