I personally would wait till next month when the 7950 comes out, and see where the 6950 ends up.

For some reason at least in several builds by Maximum PC the editors seem to prefer tri fire systems.....Yes it's a four slot 16x board, but to do that you will need a major PSU upgrade...

Have you considered just getting more of the same cards you already have?

Amazing how crazy people go for the newest cards, a lot of people are reviewing them with positive results of performance, but noise of the other hand. . .

Well i did i dont want crossfire due to added heat

Pwn as far as the new craz not really was planning on the upgrade along with the cpu when i orginally built the bulldozer rig

the sad thing is the chip was a bust so i am better off with the 965 be i have and just upgrade my card the 7000 series seems nice but im thinking of just going with a 6970 i dont see them being available in the near future due to them going nuts over it

Im sure i will see a price drop in the card im looking at i did look at a 6950 still probally go with a little better

also my 6870 can go in the other rig i have for gaming and my dad can use the 5770 for better video encoding and feeds for a hd tv

With that case and fans heat shouldn't really be much of a issue

I am like 99.999% sure the brand doesn't matter that much.....

It's a option of course, but a lot depends on the games you play and if the can scale to 2 or more gpu's
