Can anyone tell me if this chart is incorrect I see 4.3fps and $20 price difference at online shops.

Looks like the 4830 is a decent video card. I wonder how the 4830 does in Xfire mode compared to 4850 xfire and 4770 xfire.

If the 4830 xfire can reach close to 70fps for $180 then I want to buy it like this instead of nvidia 260gtx. :pt1cable:

Buy that.

You should really consider a single card solution.

First off: Less power draw
Second: Less issues
Third: Why would you spend 180 for crossfire 4830's when for less money you could get a single 4890:

That performs better?

Edit: Last, last time I checked, those open cooler cards suffocate in crossfire.

You'd probably have to dish the dough for a card with a cooler that actually exausts, so 120 for one, so 240 for two bad cards in xfire.

For that price you could get 2x4870's...Or something not a 4830
