But, immediately the menus begin to be sluggish and its utter rubbish when I crank up to dx10, dx11 is worse, and high quality is like walking through fresh poured cement.

I would like to stay with nvidia since their drivers have been stellar, though I have heard plenty of praise from the red side recently so I'm not really deterred by old stories of driver horrors. The negative aspect of the green team is the low vram and high price. Newegg is selling 3gb 580s at a ridiculous price of $600 usd. I see more potential in the tri-fire setup. Just gonna need to sort out a few things and then there's a big chance I'll be switching cards.

Try lowering or to be honest turning off the AA and AF that will likely make a bigger difference than dropping to medium settings and will look prettier while it does.

Yeah its been very hard to recommend Green cards recently on price/performance, depending on the frame rate your after 2 6970 should be plenty, Else if you can delay 3/4 months or so the new gen should hit nvidia are promising something quite special personally I think it is all hype but we can hope ^^

Unless really desperate for an upgrade, I'd hold off a little before getting 69xx seeing how the 7xxx is probably just around the corner. They should be pretty impressive with the 28nm process.

I dont know yet, Im buying the 27" to test wether i prefer it, may end up keeping it but if not i figure i wont loose too much selling the screen on.

may end up using 3 screen eyfinity for games that support it and using the 27" for things like starcraft who knows ^^

I ran the benchmark and go a solid avg 30 fps with everything maxed out.

But, I launched the game on dx11, high, 5760x1080, aaa, afx4 and it was sluggish. Vram spiked to the max on all three, and this was just about 10 seconds into the game.

time for 69xx cards

edit: better prices wen 7xx series launches, plus, its only been a few months and if I do change my mind I can sell them.

Hey guys,

I want to be part of the thread. I just built my first ATI graphics rig (2gb MSI 6950 Twins) and I will never go back. I absolutely love gaming on my 3 24" Acers. The 47" LG is on my older Alien in the backround.





This is my first build and it ended up gettign nominated for rig of the month. I was rather suprised but happy:

If u wanna support an ATI graphics rig throw a vote.

I have a question: Can I use 2 mini DisplayPort on the HD6970 along with the dual link DVI to do 3x30" Eyefinity? The thing is there's only one dual link DVI and one single link DVI so I can't use the 2nd DVI port to support up to 2560x1600 so I'm wondering if I use 2 mini DisplayPort it will work?
