I'm building a new gaming rig and am still deciding on what GPU set-up to go. I will be gaming strictly at 1920x1080 and have a 500$ budget on the GPU's. However I'm at a cross-road of which set-up would be better in terms of performance,noise level,heating,efficiency, 2x6870s or 1x 5970?
I haven't seen many benchmarks, all I can say is that the benchmarks I've seen with the 6850/6870 scaling is awesome. (near 100% in some cases) compared to the 5xxx series seems like it's a LOT better.
