Yeah, that's really expensive for better graphics . But it does looks promising, though I don't have the money to spent it on it.

The down side is you must a have a ATI chipset mobo in order
to use ATI's cross-fire technology.

Unless you're earning cash from such powerful hardware, or just a filthy rich, gaming freak, this one isn't that much of an importance.

From what i have seen of the crossfire, i personally think ATI might lose the SLI wars because of the fact you are going to using an external dongle that controls the SLI instead of an internal bridge

Owning the top end nVidia cards is hardly cheap. 6800 Ultra cards hit about £375 each >_> .

Uh... is it the same as the price on the site you gave or not?

The upside to Ati Cross-Fire is you can combine any ATi card that supports Cross-Fire.
Not like Nvidia's SLI, if you get a GeForce 6800gt and you want to make SLI you will
still have to buy another 6800gt.

It's nice to see ATi trying to get back into the game. Cost for a crossfire system really doesn't seem much more than an nVidia system. After all, you still need two compatible video cards and motherboard that supports the technology. For ATi, you need two ATi cards and an ATi motherboard that supports CrossFire. For nVidia, you need... well, two nVidia cards and an nForce motherboard that supports SLI.

Maybe at some point the external dongle will dissapear and be ingegrated internally. It reminds me of the old Vodoo2 SLI in that sense... nVidia used to have an internal bridge to connect two cards, but that has since been replaced by an on-board connector. In time, ATi might move to this as well.

Well, to be honest I think it'll depend on the quality of ATI's next processor. On the plus side, it has universal compatibility, but it's also external, which seems a bit messy to me. I hope it gets replaced with something internal.

If we talk in a very high pitched voice, the fish can't hear us...
