i don't know much about 6970's, but i have heard that some 6950's unlock to 6970's. honestly, that is a killer deal. for me, ati's drivers and game support is a deal-breaker for me.
i know! but the e-peen troll is gnawing on my brain! Screaming in my ear to get 2 GTX 580s! 99 out of 100 times, when people get 2 video cards, especially 2 high end enthusiast cards like the 580, its never out of necessity, just out of the fact of saying, "HA! I have 2!"......even on youtube, ive seen benches ran on metro 2033 with the 580s in SLI on a 24 inch monitor and the dude was pulling 55-65 fps the whole time, with minor dips in fram rate here and there, but only for a mere second or two.....is 2 GTX 580s overkill? you bet your badonkadonk it is!!!!! Do i truly need it? Heck no! But in today's world, where status is literally EVERYTHING, having 2 high end cards is a must, especially if youre a guy, we like to go overboard and flaunt and puff our chest out and say, "HA HA HA!!! I GOT THIS AND YOU DONT!", its human nature.....just like when you see someone driving down the street in a brand spanking new ferrari or lamborghini, do they need that car? Do they race professionally?.....NO!!!! But yet again, the E-PEEN troll wins again! He's a brain ninja!lol.
