Default Re: Ok guys school me, what have I missed?

The HD 4870 x2 may be the most powerful single slot solution ,but you still run into problems like you do with crossfire.If crossfire is not supported then you are basically running a single HD 4870. IMO the best single slot with one GPU is the Nvidia GTX 280.But don't get me wrong they are both great cards .I would go with two GTX 260 216 shaders and run them in SLI.Even the GTX 260 with 192 shaders is a great deal since you can get two of them for under $500 and will beat a HD 4870x2 in most games.Others words you can't go wrong with a 4870 1gig ,4870x2 or a GTX 280 or the GTX 260.
