More about : 2xgigabyte radeon 5970 2gb 1xsapphire radeon 5970 4gb pletopia August 4, 2010 7:02:38 PM just guessing here .. but 2 cards trumps 1 card (in this case having 4 cores is better then 2) since ultimately you have the same amount of vram for the framebuffer cocliosttro August 4, 2010 7:24:25 PM So 2 cards is better tho what motherboard should i get?

Since SLI is scaled better than CF then you will get more benefit from Nvidia cards. 2x GTX 470 or 2x GTX 480 are nice...
