Re: New Core i7 860 build!
Hey Nate, sorry it's taken nearly a year to get back to this thread. See my above posting for answers to my first year on Crossfire. When it worked, it really kicked butt. When it didn't, it left a bit to be desired. A single 5870 is no slouch, but it's no match for the full force of Fermi in it's proper form, GF110. I could have gotten a pair of 6950's for the same price I guess, and gotten better performance overall, but then it's back to the Profiles Shuffle, and I'm really tired of that.

And several other rigs...
