Does anyone know where I can find a X1800 Crossfire Edition card? I have an X1800XT right now and I wanted to upgrade to Crossfire sooner or later but I can't seem to find a card!

The x1800 Crossfire Edition was a rather limited run, due to it's short life before the X1900 took it's place. You may be able to find one on eBay, or by scouring the net shops, but it's gonna cost you.<br><br>
Honestly, with DX10 right around the corner, and even disregarding that and concentrating on performance alone, you're better off either waiting till RD600 hits the shelves & having more performance with a single card vs. X1800 Crossfire, PLUS you'll at have SM 3.0 as well.<br><br>
It's just not remotely cost effective to do X1800 Crossfire now, even if you already have an X1800XT.<br><br>
If you figure in selling your X1800XT, you'll get a crapload better performance for a lot less money.

Can't you just use a X1900CF model?

Dude, you have a 19" inch LCD which probably does 1280x1024.<br><br>
You don't need crossfire X1800XT's, let alone this close to DX10.<br><br>
If you do, expect $350+

I think it would just be more cost effective to sell the X1800 and get an X1900 or X1950.

Looks like you're in the same boat as me with the CF x1800xt.<br><br>
I have a Sapphire x1800xt 512mb, 5 mos old card bought new from Newegg. I'm gonna hop on the bandwagon and sell it before all the new stuff comes out..$235 w/o shipping -$250 shipped (in the US)..Let me know if this interests you.

Thanks for all the feedback! It sounds like I'll wait. I got my X1800XT for 200 new off of ebay. I'll probably see whats out in a couple years when I get out of high school and pick up a new rig then. Also, the CF was for the shiny new 24" BenQ monitor I was thinking about ordering.
