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

The 5970 is better, You can then OC it to emulate two 5870's. It will perform better most the time seeing as it's technically not Xfired.

Should run all those games fine...

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.

What resolution are you playing ? (Is it 3x 1920x1080 ?)

Your FPS in MW2/BC2 looks quite normal.
As for WoW,don't worry much about it because I've seen lots of people reporting low FPS with this game(with powerful setups).
