    Crossfire Question re x1600

    Hi

    I've been reading the Crossfire FAQ at ati.com and from what I undserstand and old 2 x x1600 cards will work together...is that right? You don't need a crossfire edition?

    EDIT: This is what I read:

    The all-new Radeon X1300 and X1600 graphics cards do not need a CrossFire Edition co-processor or external cable. Just plug in two cards from the same series and use the Catalyst® Control Center software to command your ultimate gaming experience!
    I can't run games at any resolution highter than 1280x1024 because of my monitor, so I'm looking at crossfire for the SuperAA.

    Any thoughts?

    That is right. However, you'd be better spending the money on a single card that's better and just enabling the various fancy AA modes on that card. Yes there is no 'super AA', but there is transparent AA and various other IQ enhancements that require a fast card even at 1280x

    I can't afford an x1800xt master card. Think I'll probably end up going for 2 x x1600xts.

    Need a crossfire motherboard and a new CPU too. I want the vapochill micro cooler but SCAN don't sell it. Or the ECS KA1 MVP mobo I was after
