    Im thinking of getting a second 2900xt to run in crossfire mode. Would my opty running at 2.8Ghz be a bottleneck?

    Would prefer not dropping more cash on mb/cpu/ram.

    Well it would help some, but if it's anything like SLI, it will be buggy on some games.

    I would worry more about that, than any bottleneck issues.

    How much could you get for your 2900xt?

    Maybe sell it and buy a single higher end card?

    Yea i was thinking about that too. (3870x2) Dumping my 2900xt and going with the newer one. I could probably get $180-$200 for my 200xt. hmm
