Default Re: What is your opinion on CrossFireX and SLI?

They are both great cards ,I had a pair of Gigabyte HD 5870 in C.F. and it ran all my games just fine.But I have always like nvidia better IMO I think SLI scales just a little better ,plus I like nvidia control pannel a lot better.So when I found MSI GTX 470 on sale for $279.99 with a free game and free shipping ,I just bought two.If you run them at default then the HD5870 C.F is the fastest in most games.But once you set the MSI GTX 470 to 775/3800 then the GTX 470 in SLI is faster in most games.You really can't go wrong which ever card you choose.
