I guess it depends if you feel your 1 card is not keeping up with the games you play at max settings, assuming you use it for gaming?

What is the size of your monitor/resolution?

Eyefinity can be done with a single card with the correct adapter.

The 6950 is a fairly powerful card so I imagine it will play pretty much anything you throw at it for the time being. Perhaps 6 months down the line when things are a bit more demanding would be a better time to consider a 2nd card?

Cheers

Paul.
