will you crossfire for your next upgrade? if yes, it's better use i7/860/5850 then add another 5850

I think ill crossfire if the prices go down dramatically like by $100. 0_0 but would 60 amps on 12 volt rails be enough for crossfire if so then there is a higher chance.

Thats a good upgrade. Its kinda from where I upgraded, except I kept my DDR2 and stuff. But yeah, now I can play Crysis on HIGH with some settings on VERY HIGH with absolutely no lag.(Before I had lag with my dual core).

 

I think HD 5850 is good enough for now, down the road if your seeing to much lag just add another ;)
