Its also $40 more but you could also do that. I got the same card (Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6950 2GB) on NCIX.com for $230 on sale. But honestly it's not much of a difference unless OP plans to use Eyefinity.

Wow, all of those useless posts were deleted. Thank you mods, now the OP can actually see people that are trying to reply to him.

I was thinking about using eyefinity, so i5 2500k and a 6970 then another later sounds like may be the game plan, might save up and go ahead and buy 2. I may sell my old PC to help out as well. Or save Money and use my old case.

You can just unlock a Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6950 2GB to a 6970 here's a video how:

So 2 of the 6950's unlocked is the equivalent to 2 6970's?

reedit
change of case
