SLI 250 VS single 6950?

Got a quick question.
My brother got a old PC running nVidia 250 SLI.
And i got a AMD 6950 that i aint using.
So he asked me if it would be an upgrade for him to use the single 6950 card insted of the 250 SLI cards?
What do you guys think? would he get a performance boost in games with the 6950.

Probably be best to use the single 6950
Performance would be better most likely if you have 2 extra PCI -e slots use the 250's for PhysX

Plus less power consumption, less noise and less heat.
