Just saying and to help prove your non-idiocy, which he didnt imply in the beginning, an 850w is more than enough

Yes, please let it die though. OP you won't need an 850w for either of those cards. A 5970 will quite happily work with a quality 650W. I would go for the 5970, because in terms of raw power its still king. Games which don't use sli/cfx aren't gpu intensive anyway so you won't even NEED a second card.

Get the 6970.

If you don't like the performance, you can always upgrade to 6970 crossfire.

And yes, it can play crysis. Not a smooth 60FPS, but it can play it maxed out somewhat smoothly.

QuadFire? Are you trusting that much to AMD? I suggest you prepare to get mad because of problems you're gonna face and eat your nails.

You really should've been here when 5000 series came out and see for yourself how angry 5970 Quadfire users were. The cards refused to operate normal and when users informed AMD about it, AMD fixed the problem after 6 months until another one appeared.

I have yet to see single 5970 Quadfire user who is contend with his setup.
