Neither option is ideal and if it were me, I would just keep the cash for future upgrade.

But for you:-
Getting a HD6950 1GB, its being unlocked is 'questionable' as I have not seen any 1GB version being unlocked. Perhaps it can. But even so, the other unlocked HD6950 2GB will perform as if it were a 1GB version, wasting half of its VRAM.
And, this CF pair will probably often not be fully matched by the CPU at 1920x1080.

So, I suggest the 2 Acer monitors and setup an Eyefinity with your current Dell to game at 3x1920x1080.

does eyefinity affect framerate on three monitors?
post #15 of 18
What about an ssd? It looks like you have pretty good balance between your proc and your graphic card why not spend the money somewhere else? New case or ssd drive get my votes

Monitors. Your video card is powerful enough for most games out there, and more screen space is always useful.

Get the monitors!

This fits into my scenario so much right now. Second 5770 or second monitor. I have had so many issues with both. Buut I would have to say the monitor. That card you have is a little higher than the 5770 and I do fine.
