If the 480 OCs well and leads the 5870 by a decent amount I may get one. The degree will matter and the price. Do I need one? No

If you want to experiment with Crossfire, go for it. Formulate your own opinion. I always strongly suggest people don't buy a second card from a place that only allows them to return it for a replacement if it's defective. I'm saying folks should make sure they can get a full refund for their second card purchase in case they're not satisfied with Crossfire for whatever the reason.

I'm not brand loyal. So if the 480 rocks, I'll own one.
