Help - Graphics Card Options ??

  Mineah 22:43 01 Jun 2008

I am about to purchase a new PC, which will predominately be used for gaming (Currently World of Warcraft, but with a view of newer games shortly)

I am not sure whether to buy a PC that has a single Nvidia 9800GTX card (512mb) or a crossfire config of 2 x Ati 3870 (2 x 512mb)

the crossfire option would appear to cost me circa £60 more

What should i do ???

2 x Radeon 3870 should beat a single 9800GTX. A single Radeon 3870X2 would be even better than that though (that's two 3870s on one card). Either configuration would be quite powerful though.

If you can wait a month or so though Nvidia and ATI are both going to be bringing out new lines of cards which will be much more powerful.
