Which would be better when running None SLI or CrossFire games the 4870x2 or the GTX 285?
The HD 5850 will give you as much power as a 285, with a fraction of the power consumption, heat, and noise at about $100 less and will support directX 11. The $300 5850 or $400 5870 will be your best bet.
If you're not bothered about PhysX then I'd highly recommend the 5850, really is an awesome card for the price.
I was not aware that there were any recent games that at least after a driver release were not compatible with crossfire or SLi? I thought those problems had pretty much disappeared.
personally, if I owned a 4870x2 or a GTX285, I wouldnt replace them with an HD5850, instead I would probably pick the HD5870.
I second that!
