Default AMD Radeon HD 6870 CrossFireX

Computers with two or more graphics card are an interesting concept, one
that has always intrigued enthusiasts. Ever since Voodoo 2, one of the
most popular PCI 3D accelerators of all time, a dual graphics subsystem
has been something that everyone is dreaming of. Still, that impulse
aside, once you'd sit down and carefully consider all the aspects of
buying two graphics cards, you'd probably be put off indefinitely. Why?
Because buying two graphics cards definitely isn't something that could
be considered a clever investment. How come? Well, simply put, if you
have that kind of money, you'll simply buy yourself the fastest graphics
card in the current generation. If such a card is unfit for the intended
purposes for whatever reason, you may add another one. If you have a
capable motherboard and a strong enough PSU, that is. For any other
card, buying two new ones simultaneously is a very dubious decision...

All in all, we have to agree that AMD provides decent results with their
currently available setups, but let's wait and see what's to surface in
this year.
