I was studying the 2012 chart here in Tom's and in almost all, the HD 7850 IceqX Turbo was better then the high-end card's, and more cheaper.

Is that right? Has a graphic that the 7850 was the best VGA in the test.

Cost $200, and seem a better choice because is good and more inexpensive.

You guys agree? Or the benchmarks are not right?

All those set ups are two cards, thus the price would be double that. Even a single GTX 670 beats out the crossfire 7850's and is probably at the same price or cheaper, and no concerns about micro-stuttering.

A fanboy would wish that a 670 is faster than 7850 CF.

I would say no, but you will have jackasses such as the above come in and argue tooth and nail, throwing out fanboy left and right. I believe I heard that the 7850 is a pretty good overclocker, so combining two of them can give you pretty good performance. However, some of the 670's also OC pretty well, many get them running around 680 levels, and the concern with crossfire is micro stuttering can occur. Your call though, or maybe someone more familiar with AMD can chime in.

I am not biased to either, I just have heard the positives and negatives between both setups, and generally I came to see most feel it is best to go with a single card setup if possible.

Sounds good I was going to add as a general rule is better to get one that can do the job of two lower-end unless there a major price difference. not only does it make things easier if you want to upgrade leaving a path for xfire/sli less chance for problems in the future as well (in general).
