Ok, so i finally started to build my eyefinity setup. Today i picked up 3 Samsung 23" 1920x1080 monitors, im trying to decide on the graphics card now. I want the 5970. does anyone know the avg frame rate that will give on games, i play BFBC2, MW2, WoW, TF2. curious if it would be better to get 2 5870's and crossfire them. i know they are a little better because of clock speeds but how hard is it to OC the 5970 to get the same speed the 5870's are at? thanks
I vote for 5970 too, because it runs cooler,quieter and has less power consumption than 2 5870s,also it requires 1 PCI-E slot, also the difference is like 10-15% which isn't much.
No one can guarantee you to reach 5870's speeds by OC'ng but overall 5970 has a good OC'ng potential.
So I got my 5970 2gb yesterday. I'm a bit disappointed in the framerates. Getting 40ish fps in mw2 and about the same in bfbc2. In WoW in Dal I'm getting around 32fps. I know mmo's are more CPU reliant and I'm pushing some crazy resolution but I was expecting better. I'm using a AMD 955 @ 3.2 stock speeds but I'm seriously considering switching to an Intel i7.
