Default CF 6870 with BF3 and Skyrim?

Of course nobody knows for sure, I just want your opinions. Will crossfired 6870s run Battlefield 3 and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on max?

What do you think?

How do you think ONE 6870 would do?

I sure hope it will....lol..

I can not stop thinking about these games...Obsession.

One 6870 should be able to either max both or came very close, two Crossfired should pulverize them.

As above. I expect to max the game on my single overclocked 5850, so I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I don't expect them to run too bad on my rapidly aging GTX 285... It's worth upgrading for Skyrim.. I'm more excited about that than BF3

Thanks guys, I don't understand GPUs and graphics when related to each other very well. This is comforting LOL. I am upgrading for these games, and it's nice to not have to upgrade to a 6970 or 6990 just to play them. THey look so good!
