The 1gb is enough for that resolution for sure.

But I'd get the 2gb version incase you want to crossfire later on. Because the power of the 6950s will makes use of the extra vram on power hungry game titles, even @ 1080p.

No need to crossfire anything just for the sake of crossfiring. If you can afford it, get a 6970 2gb or a GTX570 and just go single.

That's plenty for 1080p if that's what you have for a monitor.

You will have less problems with drivers, heat ect. and such.

Yeah go for a good GTX 570 if you got the cash for one in my opinion, they're fast as balls, stay nice and cool and overclock really well.

Altho going with a HD 6950 2GB card isn't a bad choice either, it's really up to you if you got the extra dough to spend or not.
