Don't have enough for a 1080p monitor and a 6950.

With your 4890, you're not even pushing it fully at 1680, that's all I'm saying.

well I should update my rig I switched back to my other monitor and now I am running 1600x900. I like this res a bit better, because 720p is equal to 1600x900 and it looks better imo.

Hrm, I'm on a 260 still but I don't play NFS: World and I don't have Crysis. I do have Warhead, but I didn't enjoy it all that much so I don't play it often. When I did play it I played it at 1680x1050 on the step below the max setting and it was bearable but not my cup of tea really.

However, I have no problems playing BC2, Just Cause 2, Company of Heroes, (keep the list going here). Just recently moved up to 1920x1080 and I see similar or better performance with my 260.

Well I don't really see a game that would make the 6950 struggle too much on 1600x900 so if you do get the upgrade you'll probably be able to max out most games

and if I popped in a second 4890 Toxic from Sapphire, would I be running good at 1080p

Well both monitors are nothing special but they should work OK but to be honest I'm not a monitor expert. If you plan on going Crossfire 4890 thats a lot of power there but be prepared for higher power consumption and more heat
