i think you should look at the reviews again, on some games a single 4870 did just as well as the x2 if not better and games that did support the x2 were better but not be the margins we'd all like.

hd 6870 Unigine Heaven Post your score !

is a thread about 6870's and some others 6850's and some nvidia cards where you can see some quite different results posted from members with the same card showing that some are getting alot more out of the cards than others are, the differences can be pretty large which is kinda surprising.

best of luck with whatever you choose.

That benchmark raped my 4870 in DX10. Why would you show that to me?

Lol.

Good question since Unigine Heaven is a DirectX11 benchmarking tool. So yeah, your 4870 getting "raped" is not surprising since the 4000 series cards are DX10/10.1

BTW the 5000 & 6000 series ATI/AMD cards are DX11

And I rather enjoy my 6950. Here's my scores - hd 6870 Unigine Heaven Post your score !

I really don't like you much right now.

I'm practically right back to the 'home stretch' again; which card do I go with, etc. If I end up winning this auction for a $96 X2 I'm out of luck.

It a tough decision but there is some good advice here, especially smarteyeball's thoughts on crossfire. I too feel like crossfire is broken, but the difference between me and smarteyeball is that he actually had crossfire setup.

Anyway good luck in whatever direction you choose.

Peace

Exactly. At least, come tomorrow, I can pick up a refurbished X2. Or maybe I'll go with a 2GB 6950...I have absolutely no idea at this point. For me it's a freakin' toss-up.
