AMD Cards seem to have problems with Witcher too and 30 - 40fps for METRO is probably about right if i'm honest.

I have the 6950, great card but i don't think it's going to be much different from 2 x GTX 460? IIRC 2 x 460's are meant to be superb in SLI?

I have read numerous posts complaining about this in both CROSSFIRE AND SLI. Not sure about single GPU

If I were you, I would stick with those 460s until new generation of GPUs is out, then upgrade.

Those games are tough on all cards.

If you REALLY feel the need to upgrade, I'd recommend a 3GB Version of the GTX580. They're usually factory OC'd.

Can't guarantee it'll beat 2x 460s though, not many figures to relate to

If you want to OC them more (or have relatively deep pockets) then I'd recommend this bad boy.

According to Computex rumors, nVidia might be showcasing their next gen GPUs, though there's much doubt about this.

In the end it's your call.

EDIT: Stay away from the 6990, they're not worth the amount charged...
