I don't like the idea of crossfire or SLI. Just seems wrong to me, especially to buy two cards at the same time. Maybe get a 560 now and add another one in a year or so.
How do the 560 compare with the 6950? Here they are only 10€ apart.
Heck... what am I writing about graphics cards? I have an ATI 4670 in my computer.
I am also patiently waiting for Dragon Age 2...
has done reviews between the 5xx and 6xxx series of cards. If I remember right, the 69xx series were just beaten by the 5xx cards, but at a much lower price point per card.
Which opens the door to cheaper crossfire.
I've been absolutely thrilled with the performance of my 5870 and my two 5770s in cross.
