SM3.0 on an X1600 Pro is practically useless anyways because games that use it will send the cards performance down the drain, seeing as it can hardly keep up with a 6600 GT.

That X850 card is an X850 Crossfire edition, you could buy just a regular X850 XT PCIe card for possibly cheaper. With a crossfire motherboard, you could later add the Crossfire edition for crossfire support, but both the X850 XT and X850 Crossfire editions are going to be hard to find in a years time.

Also remember that X850 crossfire is limited to 1600x1200 @ 60hz refresh rate.
