Keep my current graphics card or....??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.

I just have a quick question, I currently have a Sapphire 5970 which is working fine. What i'm thinking of doing though is possibly ditching my current card and going for 2 580's or wait in the future and get a 595 when it comes out or the 6990 from ATI? Or, could i get another 5970 and have quadfire? I'm still not sure about all this, i might just end up keeping what I have but I wanna hear what you guys think. Thanks a lot

I honestly don't think you really need a new graphics card. Your current one is going to hit all games that come at it head on. If you really want to upgrade, just go with another 5970, since that'll be your cheapest option. I hear quad fire is nice these days.

Don't go Quadfire, and I'd wait another generation, even with buggy drivers the 5970 is very powerful.

True, but I don't know what happened to them, it seems as if they all disappeared...Like there nowhere to be found on sites like Newegg.. which I get all my parts from..
