In theory, yes. You might have to leave the memory speeds alone, though, since this has been giving people problems.

Yes, that's correct. AMD will be releasing the 6990 soon, which is a dual-GPU card, but I was never a fan of those in the first place. You can definitely overclock your two 6950's higher than a 6990 because the 6990 will run hotter since it's got two GPU's on the same PCB (unless it's been downclocked to hell and back).

Oh, and baddagger, don't forget to fill out your system specs in the User CP .

hey is there a big diff between the 6950 and 6970.. cause i just cancelled my order on newegg adn goign to put a new one in for 2 graphic cards...instead of one.. but the diff is about $80 each card.. so will i get a big diff in fps in gamming between the two?

Nah, I don't think it's worth it to go with the 6970's...I only recommended them in the first place because I thought you were made of money . As others have said in this thread, the 6950 can be flashed to a 6970 (just watch out for the artifacting), so you'll be getting 6970-ish performance for $80 less per card.

Well, I'm not sure what IC's those are, but if they can do 2000MHz CAS 9, then you could maybe do 1600MHz CAS 7.

I agree with you as far as this, the 1075t is not a BE, it is a normal hexa-core, go for the 1090t
