    Depends on what you would like to crossfire.A 5870 crossfire will see a 5% performance drop.
    16x 4x actually scales pretty well unless u r talking abt a 5970 crossfire setup.It's not as bad as it sounds. I mean, that 4x sounds like 3/4th performance loss, but it ain't so.16x 4x configuration should scale nething upto a 5870 crossfire setup quite comfortably.
