Introduction

 

If you find yourself not wanting to venture down the path of SLI and nVidia yet want to stick with your AMD solution, the chances are that you have been looking around at the ATI chipset offering Crossfire.

 

Today we will be building a system around ATI's latest technology Crossfire and seeing just how it performs and if we can overclock with ease. HIS and Crucial will be both making an appearance in the system along with DFI.

 

The components under the hammer include the latest DFI Crossfire RDX CF-DR Crossfire enabled motherboard, HIS with an X850XT and X850XT master card along with Crucial with 2GB of DDR500 Ballistix memory.

 

What we will do is have a look at the products individually and see what they have to offer us, check out how we went with overclocking and then get on with the onslaught of benchmarks to put the Crossfire system through its paces.
