how much FPS increase?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How much FPS (in games) increase would you see if you went from a single GTX 580 to 2x 6950's overclocked in crossfire? I searched around and almost all the comparisons I found were for 2x 580s versus 2x 6950s. Thanks for any help.

2 6950's will certainly cream 1 580, however there are crossfire issues to deal with such as no support in some games and other issues. I say stick with your 480 for now until more powerful cards come out.

Ok. Just asking since I got a new monitor that is much higher resolution and I want to be able to keep the graphical fidelity turned up. Thanks.
