Default Re: My 8800GTX vs 4870 tests

I have also thought about the possibility: 3xCrossfire with the 4870 and the x2, but I think this setup has one problem: the 4870x2 has two 4870s with 1 Gb memory each, while the standalone 4870 is limited to 512 Mb, so I don't know if the 512 Mb card could limit the whole system in extreme resolution & AA conditions, maybe half of the memory of the 4870x2 would be "lost"
