You're probably going to be limited by your CPU, since the 6950 is one of the best cards on the market. You may want to consider a motherboard/RAM/GPU upgrade, but you won't be able to go all-out on the GPU. You should get better performance that way than by buying just a 6950.

First just like to say Thank you for posting answers so fast, The games I play are "Call of Duty Black Ops - Multiplayer" and "Battlefield Bad Company 2 Multiplayer" resolution is set at 1024 by 768 would like to go higher if I can, My monitor will go up to 1080p.

If u thinking 1080p BC2/Black Ops:

1. Chip is fine - grab an aftermarket and clock it a wee bit
2. Hit a HD 6870/GTX 560? HD 6950 2GB if planning to CF for Eyefinity, etc
