That's fine! I was just saying what I decided to do when I was at this point in my computer making process. My previous setup had crossfire 5850's, and I loved them. I'm not a fanboy. The 580 is more expensive. It's a great card. Crossfire 6950's will beat it. It will beat Crossfire 6950's if it's SLI'ed.
If I was at that point again, and had less money then I did when I was making mine, I would have done Crossfire 6950.
