Hi, i want to upgrade my gfx card and I was sondering what the performance difference is between 2x4870 and 4870x2...These are the prices at my place, what should I go for?:

2x4870: 440$
4870x2: 620$

Im on a tight budget and I would like to go for the 2x4870's if the performance difference is not too much.

Performance difference benifits the x2 by a few frames per second
for that price difference get the 2 4870s

I was thiking, for gaming at 1920x1080 will a single 4870 be enough to play all games except crysis at the highest settings and a little aa?

I suggest to wait till the new ATI RV740 (HD 4860 and 4830) cards. They will be much affordable and will force 4870 prices to drop.

As above - i have a single 4870 for my 24" - sold my dual 3870s to get it
I can play all at max - COD4 maxed out is at ~90fps

Maybe wait for the R790 chip (aka 4870 Superclocked at stock)
