Oh dude, you should have bought a 4870. Better performance by far. Trust me, I had a 2 3870's in CF, and a 3870X2 with a 3870 in CF. Unless you got a wicked deal on the 3870X2 then I wouldn't worry but I found quite a difference between the two gens. Wicked OC on the CPU by the way!!!!

i sold my gtx 260 for 150$ plus the 3870x2, and considering i only paid 300$ for my gtx 260 and got a couple of months use out it i thought i came out on top. im hellbent on a trifire or quadfire setup lol. originally i wanted sli ,but am2 had crap offerings for sli. These processors can have the 4th core unlocked, but gigabyte put out a crap bios update for deneb support so ACC wont work at all. regardless im still quite pleased with my new cpu. it hands down is stomping my 9950BE into the ground even though its shy one core
