I think anyone who's looking to spend $600 on GPUs to use on a $250 monitor is missing the point, personally.
It's no secret that 6970/50 CF shines when you've got Eyefinity or 30" + antialiasing resolutions. At anything less you obviously end up with something between a 570 and a 470, which (again obviously) is merely equivalent to a 470 when the 470 is ridiculously OC'd and the 5950 doesn't even have the proper OCing tools available yet.
We already know "how hard 69xx Crossfire rocks" from Anandtech benchmarks at 25x16+4x AA. The 6970 CF beats 580 SLI in the 2 or 3 benchmarks where FPS is lowest, loses where FPS is highest (100+ and thus irrelevant), and almost ties the rest of the time.
So the facts are already established - amazing value at the high end. A single 1080p/1200p monitor hasn't been high end for some time now.
