Re: Ati or Nividia ?!
Use a single better card. It has less heat. Some games have trouble using two gpu's, so sli/crossfire my cause some problems. Whether you go 6970 or 580 is up to you. 580 is much better, but also more expensive. Ati will give you the option of eyefinity and 3D, nvidia just has 3D...however...I have heard of a program for nvidia that is like eyefinity..but I don't know what it is or how reliable it is......
It also gives you the option of upgrading later to two gpu's when you find your computer can no longer run newer games..
