post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I sold both my 6850s and are now going for a single GPU-setup. Today I'll be ordering a new card. Whats the best ATI/AMD-card? Max

If its the 6970 i will be unlocking it from a 6950 ofc. Max 700USD

i believe that's the card you're going to want for a single GPU. for dual GPU it's still the 5970

Yes HD 6970 is the fastest unless you look at HD 5970. You can also wait for HD 6990.

The 2GB 6970 is the fastest and strongest Single GPU card out there.

The fastest card overall is the 5970 but it is 2 GPUs so it doesn't qualify as a single GPU card.
