Default Dual 6850 vs 6950/6970

Hey guys,

I have my rig that I switched up a bit since my sig, but my question is, I walls like to bump my video card.

I currently have a 6850 and would either like to buy another one and crossfire them or buy a 6950/6970.

So lookin for your opinion and let me know what would be best, performance wise.

Cheers

P.S. I would be looking to put two 1080p 23 or 24 inch monitors on there.

Pretty big price jump bwt the 6950 and the 6970. also remember crossfire does not always work great in certain games.

look up benchmarks for the games you play and see how each of the graphics card set ups do in the games you play...

Is there an nvidia equivalent to the 6950/6970/dual 6850?
