2 6870s are faster, but what if you want more power down the road? tongue.gif
I would go with a 6950 or 6970. They are pretty fast too tongue.gif

a single card is always better than a multi GPU setup, because of drivers, and also micro stuttering issues - everything seems more smooth on a single GPU at the same FPS.

But a multi GPU is unstable, driver wise.. can be great on a game, and crap on another

so there is your answer.. 6970 over the dual 6850s
