    So i have 1 Radeon 3870x2 which is a sapphire model
    they have the Radeon Visiontek 3870hd OC on sale for 129$ at best buy (in store)
    i was wondering with Crossfire, is it possible to crossfire these two cards?
    making sure, since they are both different company brands
    i was thinking, they would have to be same company at least.
    just need a quick reply, i think the sale ends tomorrow night..

    nice find. I went looking around and couldn't find anything online or instore that could match that.
    I assume that by your lack of complaints that, despite it being a different brand, the crossfire still works?

    Don't know yet, im still waiting to receive my replacement Corsair power supply
    and i had to purchase a UPS-power back up for it, since a storm surged the PSU... or blew it.

    but i'll see, it should work though. hopefully.
