Best graphics card(s) for $550-$600

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ok I sold my two Sapphire 5870 E6E's today for $500 to a friend. What gpu(s) should I get? I have two pci-e x16 slots that have a big space between them
My budget is $600. I was thinking about two of these.

Can you guys find a better choice for me?

You're running three monitors?

CF 6950 or 6970 are your best choices then.

Pretty much. They'd be better even without unlock.

Save the remains and get an SSD or something.
