    Its a decent deal.

    Plays Prey for me pretty well at 1680x1050 with 4x/8x for aa/af.

    Has some slow-downs but still, extremely playable.

    That's an 850 Crossfire. The original post was about an 850XT.

    The ATI site contains no information about what the GPU and Ram speeds are. I would not assume I was getting a full speed 850XT from that link. Number of pixel pipes and memory bandwidth are correct for an 850XT.
