Alright. I've got two x1600 XT's, one Sapphire, one HIS, in Crossfire. Performance pretty much sucks, whether the cards are in Crossfire mode or not. FEAR doesn't even play like there are two cards present at all. Oblivion runs fine, with a notable performance increase with Crossfire, BUT if there is ANY shadow option enabled, frame rate drops dramatically. Same goes with NFS Carbon/Most Wanted. With any other game (read Doom 3, FarCry, and GTA: San Andreas.. the list goes on) performance is hit or miss (mostly miss) at any level of FSAA, quality setting, resolution, whatever. Am I missing something here? I'm using Catalyst 7.2. I've got an MSI RD480 Neo2-Fi, 2 gigs of DDR400 (dual channel), an Athlon64 X2 3800. I've got a 450 watt PSU, with everything connected. The x1600's are both overclocked to 620/800. The overclock helps, but ultimately it doesn't. Lately I've been looking at ditching the x1600 XT's for two x850 XT's. Would it be worth it?
