You could always get a X2 and stick in it along side your 4870 for a Tri-Fire setup.

The best setup for Crossfire is two 4890's though. Those things scale to 90% or better at high resolutions.

Mr. Pedantic;4892825Oh, right. Like that ASRock one? To be honest, I never knew Crossfire with 4 cards was possible...

It isn't..... yet.

It has to be. What's the point of, say, 4870X2 Crossfire then?

You can obviously run 4x 4890s if your motherboard has enough pci-e slots. Throw some waterblocks on them and you wont have any issues with them taking up 2x slots.

Well it's not actually 4 individual 48 series cards in 4 different slots, it's a dual card solution which means there are two GPUs running on each 4870, 90, or whatever you use. Same for Nvidia's Quad-Sli, there are only 2 GTX 295s, but they're 2 GPU's running in each.
