I call upon thee quite an exaggeration of a title I say. Hmmm... on the other hand is the 4830 crossfire better or equal than 8800 or 9800gt SLI?

Those drivers sure gave COD4 an incredible performance boost.

That's in X Fire. So technically, it's not a fair comparison. Who ever wrote that review
is obviously a fan boy. Come on, the GTX 280 is a single GPU, and it solidly beats
all ATi GPU's (single) but when it comes to X-FIRE whoooah it beats the 280
with two GPU's. This kinda review really annoys me. The author of this review
is desperate to get one up on Nvid & has the mentality of a spoilt child - you know...
my puter's better than yours or in this case my GPU's better than yours.
I'm too old for thiss**t! lol

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

Yes it is a very fair comparison when you compare Price/Performance. In other words, its cheaper to buy 2 x HD 4830's than one GTX 280. I am not saying the GTX 280 is a bad card, just saying 2 x HD 4830's are a better value for better performance in most cases.

Yes, the title of this thread should be: "It takes TWO HD 4830's to Edge Out GTX 280". I won't even get into the fact an old driver (177.79) was used for the nVidia cards instead of the newest driver (178.24). The mere fact that ATI is chasing nVidia is good enough for me. It will improve all video cards and probably continue to lower prices.

X-Fire IS Crossfire whether it's two cards with 1 GPU per card, or to X2's on Crossfire.

Yet, you couldn't resist the temptation of going for a card that would beat the 4830 xfire configuration. :P *giggles*
