Upgrade Help.....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 5850 in my system and some how I managed have a eyefinity set up...so now I'm gaming at 5760x1080 in some games and the 5850 isn't cutting it. Been racking my brain on what to upgrade too...I been going from getting another 5850 (or even a 5870 for mixed matched x-fire), a single 6970 or 6950 or the extreme (for me) duel 6950s.

right now this 5870 is on sale and tempting me for some mixed x-fire...but will it be enough...

also all this talk about unlocking the 6950 to 6970 has me thinking on those aswell

maybe one of these or 2 heh

Your links do not work. However I would go with a 6950 and try to unlock it. If it doesn't unlock oh well. You can always xfire now or later.

Ok the card at the second link looks fine. Id wait for there to be at least some kind of sale or deal with it then grab one and try to unlock it. Or if you really want to crossfire now get 2 since you are running 3 monitors @1080p so 2 should let you max out any game with no problems.
