Uh Sapphire 6950 is $280 shipped. Mine should be home tomorrow. Anyhow, it's better in every sense: performance, scaling, efficiency, bla bla bla

6xxx is better both on scaling and tesselation, but i'm sure for some games/applications that 5870CF would beat 6950CF but that's irrelevant, 6xxx>5xxx because new tech smile.gif

6950's are FASTER in Crossfire, Tessellation, and everything else.
