First post on OCN thumb.gif

Spec's are

AMD radeon HD 6900
Intel Quad Core i5-2500k CPU @ 3.30 Ghz
8G of RAM
ASRock > Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
750 W corsair Power supply

Want to upgrade my GPU to something better, iv around 200-300 euro to play with, if that means upgrading more than one thing im cool with that but im looking for suggestions.

atm im 1080 P im not sure if i can do better and iv never thought about using 2, i wouldnt be buying two GPU's and it worth while using my radeon 6900 and the 970 GTX?

A 970GTX is already 4x hd 6950 oc/hd 6970
post #9 of 9
+1 for GTX 970. It would perform a lot better than two 6970's or whatever you have and with less problems. If you can find a r9 290 with a solid cooler for ~$300 that would be a great option as well.
