    I want to use Asus P5Q-Deluxe MBO with Intel Q9550 Core 2 Quad CPU. Should I crossfire 2 Asus ATi Radeon 4850 512 gig GPU's or go for a single Asus ATi Radeon 4870 1 gig GPU. Need help guys!!!

    I agree with the 4890 1GB. Probably about the price of two 4850 512MB's.

    I'd get the 4870 1 gig or a 4890 1 gig
