An idea of how many times I've given Crossfire a chance is below.
That's an impressive list I must say! Never tried cf myself(had a second 5850, but it died before I ever got the chance to cf them). The gtx 480 seems like it's shaping up to be a pretty good card and if it performs better than my oc:ed 5850 in the min fps department I'll definitely be getting one. Otherwise it's crossfire time.
