    I have looked all over for one, and I can't seem to find one. Has anyone seen a review over the HD 2600XT GDDR4 that includes crossfire?

    you know the 2600xt is slightly lower than a 8600gts on most games tested not too sure if the gddr4 version will make such a big improvment on that either, you will be downgrading imo. is it worth it? maybe not as i dont think the 2600xt/8600gts will be able to play any dx10 games at decent framerate anyway.

    check my thread in videocards "ordered x1950xt........." im rma' this 8600gts and getting a x1950xt as the call of juarez dx10 runs at 15-35 fps, whats the use of a dx10 card when the performance is abbismal. even the higher end 2900/8800 dont fare all that well imo i think im gonna wait and see what the end of the eyar brings

    wow that review shows me 2 things, 1 the 8600gts stomps the 2600xt both in crossfire vs sli and single card.(nothing new here ati's midrange hasn't been able to compete since the x600 came out the 9600xt being the last time ati held the midrange crown) and two 2600xt's can't equal one 2900xt. (same with 2 8600gts vs a single 8800gts.)
