Re: Building Another High-End Gaming PC
I had considered going SLI or with a Crossfire set-up with either the 580 or 6970 but didn't know if that would put me way over budget. As far as the two go I mean is the GTX 580 really that much better than the 6970? I went with the ATI 5870 in my last build and have been happy with it. I'll probably go with the 6970 just because the price is far better.
