New PC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I am planning on get a new PC since I am going to give mine as a gift to my father.
These are the parts that I am going to get
Motherboard: Crosshair IV Extreme
CPU: 1090T
Momory : 8 GB
HardDrive 1 TB
and for the video cards I am confuse because I use eyefinity, but I dont like to play a game on low settings.
That is why I have right now a 5970+5870 with a overclock at 950/1200(Custom Bios)


So if I get 2 6950 and then I unlock them to 6970 specs, Can that set up beat my currents one?

I know this new CPU and motherboard are better, but I am talking about video cards guys....

Can this two video cards beat my Current set up on eyefinity?

I don't think so, but it's probably close. A 5970 + a 5870 should beat a dual 6970 setup, but the 6970's will beat xFire 5870's, and a single 5970.
Puny Power!

You can't unlock the 6850, it's the 6950, and there is a high chance of it being unstable as it lacks the extra +2pin power, and many of them artifact due to this.

I would wait until thrusday when Sandy Bridge comes out.

Then hopefully AM3 stuff will drop in price since 1155 kicks AMD ass in the price ranges that AMD sells at.

I am going to do that, but I just need to be sure that 2 6950 can beat my current cards on eyefinity
