Alright so im getting new cards. I'm just curious to what the best bang for the buck is going to be, now i'm stumped and kind of need some help deciding hense why i'm asking for help. I don't know what to get though. I've been doing some research since its been quite a while since i've done my last build, and I haven't been keeping up . Basically im looking for Dual cards nVidia or ATI/AMD. I"m right now in the boat of going towards AMD because of the simple fact that I have such a high resolution with triple moniters. I'm looking at the 6950's 2GB in CFX. Now is this going to be a drastic change because I'm looking for these cards to hold me over till middle next year. ( always do a yearly upgrade ) Upsides of the 6950's is that there in my price range which by the way is $600, and you can flash them to 6970's, + the eyefinity. Downfall for me is they don't have Waterblocks yet which I wish to have, and thats not included in my price ill pay the extra $200 for blocks. I'm just curious to what cards are high performing, and whats good out there. I do miss nVidia ALOT, but I'm not sure if thats the best way to go because of the high resolution. Anyone able to give me some help and suggestions? And if chance you do have a suggestion could you show me a chart or some sort with the 5870's to a new card today, how drastically it'll be if possible. Sorry for asking a lot but its better to see for me visually than just text.

Thank you in advance guys!

Actually a pair of 580 hydrocoppers will do you just fine.

I will check my budget and see if I can help................Nope none left.

There's not much out there other than what you mentioned in the price range other than some 560's.Not sure if WB's are being sold yet.
