Thanks again I apreciate the numbers very much. If curious HD5870 fans see your numbers it should help them see it is time to go CF! w00t!

Peace! "Madpistol". (Please don't blow my head off.) (Oh, and is your safety on? Always check it first ppl.)

SLI definitely scales better on the GTX 480's. There's no arguing that.

Bear in mind, you don't need a small nuclear reactor to run 2 5870's in Crossfire.

That's an exageration, of course.

Still, 150-watts less is required to run 2 5870's in CF. That's a pretty significant amount of power.
