Would this card be a good upgrade from my 5850?

That's your best bet at getting an idea of what to expect. Also, expect far more superior tesselation power.

Heaven, 1080p, stock settings - my 5850 CF hit 55fps IRCC. 6970 hit 52fps.

Either get a 6950 and flash the bios to a 6970, or get a 6970 with the same speed as the 6950, but although it's £70 more, you get dual "something" per clock, more tess cores and it will be a bit more stable than a flashed card. Also, more OC headroom with the 6970.

GTX 570 performs a bit higher at 1080p than the 6970. But on one review i saw the GTX570 head to head on every "heavy" GPU test. (1 min of gameplay rec by fraps, max settings)

Both are good cards. I chose AMD because of my GTX 470 nightmare. All 4 of them

I have a question concerning about the 6950 bios tweak with a 6970 in crossfire mode -- is it possible?

Of course I most likely will get another 6970 because there's more room to OC, but would it perform the same level as 2 6970's?
