    none what so ever... actually i think the 790GX is better with that card at high rez than the p45/7xx/x58 for intel - when i read the phenom II reviews w/ gtx 280 the PII 940 is ahead after 1600x1200 and they attribute to the 790 chipset.

    That card would pair very very well on that board lucas. No worries!

    EDIT: But why not a 2nd 4850?

    yea thats what i was also thinking but my current aftermarket cooler takes up three slots and it would be hard to crossfire maybe?

    also i only have a 16X/8X

    16x+8x wouldn't matter at all. No bottlencecking there as they are PCIe 2.0

    NVidia=SLi, not Crossfire.;)

    Depends on your board and whether the slot's covered.

    PCIE 2.0 8x is the same as PCIE 1.0 16X (PCI-E 2.0 just feeds more voltage and is double the speed... so 8x 2.0 is the same as 16x 1.0) the 4850 in CF would be fasetr than a 280, no doubt. I run the one 8x and one 16x config with the 260's and its totally fine.
