Sapphire scored some major bragging points this morning by demoing a dual-GPU Radeon X1950 Pro board it's calling, the Godfather. The card runs on a single x16 PCI-Express slot and provides the kind of performance you'd get from running two X1950 cards in Crossfire mode. What's interesting about the Godfather, however, is that it can be paired with another Godfather letting gamers create their own power-hungry Quad Crossfire systems. Chances are you're better off splurging on a single high-end card, but if Quad Crossfire gets your juices flowing, the Godfather is expected to debut in early 2007.

If it was a dual x1950xt or xtx it might be kinda worth it, but x1950Pro?

Yes x1950pro is a great price vs performance video card, but its crossfire performance is kinda meh.

Basically just buy a x1950xt turn down the AA alittle use the savings to buy a quiet/better 3ed party cooler, booze, or something else slightly more usefull.
