with crossfire you can take any X850 and another X850 that is CrossFire edition
and the crossover

aside the fact
while dual X850XT PE's would provide a ton of powre

A) nVidia and ATi release new GPU's by July
B) It still doesn't support SM 3.0, meaning 6800's can defeat it at that

SM 3.0

When do you expect ATI to support SM 3.0?

I thought X800 and X850 could be mixed... but I was wrong:(
