2x5870 will outperform any single 6xxx in the current line-up. Can you give more info on your complete system setup as well as your budget?

Compare prices between various retailers to see what the card typically sells for. I'm not sure what a good price in Norway would be.

considering what you've posted that the new ones are 212, you're not getting very much off at 371 for 2. But you still save some money, so go for it if you're comfortable. Keep in mind next week the 69xx should drive the value of the 5870s down. I would use that as an argument as why you should pay less for the used ones now.

Hi
Yes I think I'll ask for lower price if 69xx are coming next week if not I'll just wait and see what the retail price will be next week.
If the price for a new HD69xx is close to 371£ would one 69xx be better than 2x5870?
