i do wish for a HD 6990 though .. =]

yeah maybe i'll go with the 6970 .

would the 650w be enough power if i decide to crossfire?

maybe the 6870 . i'll do research to see the benchmarks .

I wouldn't push it that far. Go for it with one 6970/6950, then when they drop to half their current retail prices, you can grab an extra card and a new PSU to Crossfire them, right now in my opinion, it wouldn't be worth Crossfiring high end cards.

Get the HD 6950 and Unlock it and same some money. Since you have a PII @ 3.8Ghz in some games the CPU will bottleneck a bit so having HD 6950 will limit that.
