    Hey get the Intel - Crossfire board.....what's the point of getting a ATI card when you can't crossfire in a SLI boarD? I mean you never know when you're going to buy a second card right?

    If you are not going to use two cards in the future then it doesn't matter. Crossfire our SLI.

    i dont believe in crossfire or sli if i want to get better performance i buy i better single card because most of the time it is cheaper to get a single better card that is cheaper but is also equal or better in performance

    That is not really true. With the more high end cards Like the 7900GS and the X1950 pro you will get higher visual quality, then let's say a X1900 XTX. This card is here were i live more expensive the the crossfire or sli. But on the other hand the power consumption is not so high
    with a single card. ;)
