Read a lot and everyone seems divided....

It's/they are going on a ASUS Rampage 2 in the blue slots (PCIEx16). Has anyone fitted two 6970CF into this board? the third PCIEx16 slots defaults to x1 when the first slot is populated so the cards are going to be very snug like the 4870's in the two blue slots.

Thoughts would be appreciated!
The 6970s would sandwiched together for crossfire 16x.

I'd opt for a one card solution like the 6990.

I think i will have to wait for next gen cards, i cant see how me swapping to 4x 6970CF or 2x 6990CF is going to give me much of a fps boost.

Sure there will be some diffrence but its still cheap for me liquid cool to OC my cards.
