I have the 4870 in the slot thats running at x8 and i know that an x8 slot shouldn't bottleneck the 4870 but i don't know how crossfire works out in all of this

I have one guy telling me its not optimal too run crossfire at x16/x8 and is frowned upon or something like that

Thanks for the input guys...i wasn't really sure if what the guy was going on about was something i should worry about or not

And BTW i knew that the card couldn't saturate the x8 slot but i wasn't sure how xfire played out in the equation...
