non-issue. If you can afford 2 of those cards, then you should be able to get 1 of the better ones, which offer similar or better performance. Plus, they can do internal crossfire.

Thanks, I forgot about interconnect. :slap:
And I think not many will buy two of these straight away. It would be more like me (eventually), buy one now and buy another next year.
