5970, 6970 or FirePro V9800 crossfire?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm debating which to use for my computer. The specs of my workstation design can be found in the link below.

Keep in mind, this computer will be used for both gaming and Game and Sound Design. I want whatever is going to work the best for both.

This is the motherboard I plan to use.

I thought FirePro GPUs are for workstations only and Radeons for gaming, and that they don't do the other very well? :s

I wouldn't know since I have never tried any of these cards. If worst comes to worst I'll ask for two computers from Make A Wish Foundation for my design studio. One for gaming and testing and the other for design.
