No single GPU card can get 60fps flat with all settings max on Metro 2033
Also with crossfire or SLI that AMD set up is going to bottleneck the cards if it isn't OC'd by quite a fair amount.
I strongly suggest you go with a 2500K build. These overclock easily to 4.5+GHz, with decent temperatures.
I don't think you read my post...
My 2x 460 max out Metro 2033 with at least 60 fps. A single GTX 580 also handles it with at least 60 fps. Two of my friends have different GTX 580 versions and both run it at max with more than 60 fps.
I was going for Bulldozer. Not the Phenom IIs. I highly doubt that a 6 or 8-core Bulldozer will bottleneck 2x 6950.
I'm aware of the 2500k, thank you. I got one myself. As I have said a few times in this thread, we WILL go with the 2500k IF, and only IF, BD is going to be worse than expected.
