1920x1080 22inch, I wanna be able to max pretty much anygame.wolvers said:Xfire 5870 would be quite a lot faster, 6970 is only marginally faster than one 5870.
You'll be missing out on 1gb VRAM though, which seems to be becoming more useful these days. What sort of resolution are you playing at?
I already have one Hd5870 so would waiting for the 7 series be my best bet?wolvers said:For now, 1gb is enough it would seem for 1080p although that's just in my opinion. How long before it becomes a problem is hard to say, that's down to the games developers. I could do with a bit more VRAM for BF3 but that's about it right now.
Having said that, I would wait a few weeks for the pricing and reviews for the 7950. If it's 3gb and not too much more than the cost of that 6970 you have linked, then it'll be a better choice for you in the long run.
