Thread Starter 
i am wondering which graphics card to get. it is a medium gaming rig with a 2500k and ud5-b3 board. im looking at the 560ti or the 570 and the 6950/6970. i will be adding another graphics card it the future to get 2 more monitors. but, if i put 2, they will both work in 8x mode. will it affect performance in any way?

ATI cards dont support 3d atm. You will need an Nvidia card. If you are gaming on a 1080p monitor a gtx 560 will max just about every game out. Sli two of them and you are set for a good while.

8X vs 16 = a loss of maybe 2-3 fps you wont notice a difference so you are fine running them in sli.

i can get a 6970 for $375 AUD and a 6970 for $4 more. should i get a 24" or just a 21.5" one? (remember, gonna add 2 more in the future so sli/crossfire is needed)

I apologize for saying ATi cant support 3d. There cards can but they dont make a 3d kit. You have to get the 3d kit from one of the third party manufactures such as Expand, Reald, or Bit Cauldron.

Also ATI isnt the one supporting the 3D drivers for its products. They have very little control over the quality and compatibility of third party software. Thats why I like Nvidia if you want 3D.

Here is a review on 6950/ 6970 and 3D
http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...-review-8.html

I like 24 inch monitors - 21 is to small imo.

Also with ATI cards you dont need sli for more than one monitor. Eyefinity support up to six independent display outputs simultaneously with a single GPU. SLI is recommended if your using large monitors tho.

Nvidias new cards can support 2 monitors., you will need sli if you are going more than 2. Hope that helps

Yup x 2 - if 3D Blu-ray or gaming is the most important to you Nvidia beats AMD on this for the reasons Krymore stated acurately. Both are great cards and have their own strenghts and weaknesses but 3D is Nvidia's forte'.
