Upgrading from cf 5770 to 6970 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
mainly play the crysis games, dead space 2, starcraft 2 (not graphically demanding at all) but would like to enjoy games like skyrim to its fullest when it comes out.

i was hoping with the release of the 7xxx series it would bring the 6s down in price. i might wait till next month. maybe there will be a good sale at frys or something.

i think 150-200ish for both cards would be a good deal. they sell for about 120 a piece. i bought mine for 175 a piece in February 2010. had i thought more into it i would have gotten a more powerful single card then and just would have upgraded now.

I was just reading that if the 7-series does manage to launch before the end of the year they expected ATI could only ship 7000-10000 units at launch. so even if they do drop. if you didnt pre-order expect to wait until Q1 2012 anyway.

i've been saving for a 6990 for awhile and next month i can finally afford to buy it. i won't be waiting
