I didn't know that, thank you! If I go that route I'll specify the eyefinity 6 cards

Talked to asus again and they dont have the 5870 eyefinity cards anymore. and the release date for the 6970 has been pushed back. They offered 2 6950,s instead which sounds pretty good, except just prior to my 5970 going bad I purchased waterblocks for it and my 5870 and the 6900 series will not crossfire with any other series cards. I am going to ask for 2 6970,s and then sell my 5970 and 5870 and the blocks and then purchase new blocks and maybe a 3rd 6970. If I am going to have to switch I would like better performance

Sell the waterblock, give it away whatever, get the 6950s lol now. Well, unless you can swing 6970s but I'd be fine with 6950s.

Why not take the 2 6950's and unlock them to 6970's? Or am I missing something here?

I didn't think they would perform as well as my 5970/5870 trifire set up. Anyone have any comparisons?

Two 6950's will walk all over your old trifire setup, even at stock. Not to mention the 6950's unlock to 6970's. Asus is offering you a HUGE upgrade, I'd take it.

Do you have links to any scores that show this? I did a little searching and so far they look close to my setup when they are unlocked to 6970's which is still ok, I just wanted to see where you're getting your comparisons.
Thanks again

Asus is sending 2 6950's. I am pleased with the way things have gone, they take great care of their customers. I will need to purchase a 3rd 6950 in the future to outperform my current setup as 2 6950's perform. Only slightly better than 1 5970 according to Asus.
I can't wait to try these out should arrive in a week or so
