Which graphics card to replace my current one. - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Kind of hard to go crossfire with a bad card.It is also kind of hard to rec. a GPU configuration for you without knowing what resolution you will be using.Single monitor setup,go for a 6950 or 570,or 6970 or GTX 580 for max power.For that matter you could grab a 5870 real cheap right now and be fine.Triple monitors is a different story.Either grab 2 6950's or 2 GTX 570's,or 2 6970's or 2 GTX 580's for high-resoltions and full eye-candy.

Even though you have 2 pci slots in the Asus P6T SE, you're going to have your cards right up against each other (doube-spaces slots are so much better).

If you plan for a multiple card set-up, AMD has cards that are very square, and when they're that close the top one won't get air.
Ex:

and go to 3:50 to see what i'm talking about

That being said, dual 570's are good for your motherboard. The 590 an the 6990 are selling fast too. I'd personally go with the 590 because it consumes less power, makes less noise, but it's a little slower
