1920x1200 is the lowest you'd wanna be running with that card.

just FYI
how can it bottleneck the pc if the resolution is low?

trust me...... the card will not perform to its optimum on a 1680x1050 monitor

Because up to to 1680x1050, the CPU is still primarily doing most of the work.

It's only from resolutions 1680x1050 and above that the card starts to take most of the work.

Since the 5970 is already a dual card, a CPU @ 3.4 will be starting to struggle to provide enough 'oomph' to drive a single 5970, even at 1920x1200.

Add another 5970 and your CPU will struggle even harder to provide enough throughput to provide the 'oomph' to fully utilize these cards in a quad-fire scenario.

As others have mentioned, myself included, you have already made your mind up.

So buy the two cards, have the CPU overclocked even further and buy a bigger screen and then enjoy several more years of smooth gameplay.

Just 1 5970, no point in going with 295 as they don't have dx11 !! ...

Or you could wait for the 400 series from Nvidia which should be coming next month hopefully.
