Gigabyte HD 7950 OC (900 Mhz) is available for a good price . USD 309 after a promo code and mail in rebate. If you want a better card get the Sapphire HD 7950 950 Mhz edition. The MSI twin Frozr cooler is not as good as the Gigabyte windforce 3x or Sapphire dual x. Its not a good option for very high overclocking.

I can only fit cards less than 10.5 in my case a CM Scout Storm - the only 79xx card less than 10.5 is the twin fozr.
I went with the 6950 as I was going to purchase BF3 no matter what so I am basically getting this card for $147 (seems like a great deal). I would hate to spend $350 on a card and then never really use it.
I realize my settings will suffer in eyefinty but it will allow me to get my feet wet and see if I want go bigger without having to wait for card prices to fall.
I assume with the gtx660, the 7990 coming out and the holidays around the corner card prices should fall and I might be able to get 7970 at a much better price near Christmas but I will also need to pick up a more accommodating case and probably a new PS (since I will have to rebuild) I have been eyeing the Seasonic modulars. I hope I should be able to get $130 on the sell of a slightly used 6950 if I do realize that is path I want to go down.
Thanks for all your advice

Count me in.

I just moved into our new place and I haven't gotten a desk yet for my eyefinity setup (so I'm using the boxes thumb.gif).

All three 17" monitors are powered by an HD 6850 (link to GPU)

No mixed resolutions for my 6870's. When I first got my second monitor it was a different res and I had to run both screens at the lower of the two resolutions until I got the second screen in to match the new one.

I wasn't even aware 7000 series can do that... how does that work?

I had to change overscan to fill the whole higher res screen with the smaller resolution. Other than that everything was fine. Games all played at full screen no problem. But about a week later I got the second new one for a matched pair and it didn't matter anymore. Gave the old one to my daughter.

Just to be clear this is for Eyefinity. If you are just running them in an extended desktop you can have mixed resolutions.
