It depends on the tests (settings), games and demo's. But after reading various reviews, CF still has microstuttering and lower min fps then a GTX280.

I don't exactly remember the sites (reviews with min fps are rare), but this userreview just sums it up:

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1320143

And I have quite a bit of experience with CF and sometimes the min fps gets worse after gooing from single to dual GPU (offcourse it depends how often it occurs for being an issue)

Offcourse I'll give the HD4870X2 a try with it's new interconnect.

Yeah, i got crossfire three times already, these min.fps was more like same low as with single, but sometimes even slower then single card, thats true.

My eVGA GTX 280 is on its way courtesy of eBay and MS Live cashback. $480 for a brand new, sealed card.

BFG GTX 260 OC sexy black card is here.

Amazing card, very silent as dead mice and very cooling at 52c idle with fan running at 728RPM and 101W power idle. Much better than either hot Sapphire 4870 and 8800GTX. Glad it worth 217 special offer at overclockers UK.

Well I ordered a 260gtx to replace my trusty 8800gtx. Its the Pony version from tigerdirect that will set me back $309 after rebate. Man and to think I shelled out $650 when the 8800gtx launched.

My 260 gtx came in yesterday and I am a firm believer in these cards. The minimum framerates are what makes this card awesome. In crysis its night and day from when I had sli 8800gt's. Amazing but true...
