Um, why does anyone need 6GB? Maybe in quad-crossfire it will help.

More RAM is very useful for multiple monitors. Using eyefinity with 3 or more HD monitors is where the extra ram comes in. There is a considerable gain when using more ram with multiple monitors.

This 6GB Memory will be very useful when running like 7970CF setup up with 3 or 5 or 7 or even 9 monitors at once. The more ram makes a huge difference when running very big resolutions.

Yes, I plan on upgrading my 3x1 portrait eyefinity setup to 5x1. The 6GB card is perfect!

are 2 of these powerful enough to utilize 6gb VRAM at 5760*1080?

I only get 1.3gb VRAM with my 2x 6950 2gb,

Edit--> in Batman AC and gpu cores at full load.

because eyefinity and 3D take a TOn of VRAM and yes i do think the 7970s core could use up all that VRAM under the right circumstances!!!
