Hello to the community,
just a simple question.

How is the HD 6970 @1680x1050 in today's games with max details? Will it have good FPS?

I've got a 1055t CPU and ASRock 890GX Extreme 3 MOBO w/ Antec TP 750W and 8GB RAM

6970 for 1680x1050?! What a waste! Besides, most game don't use more than 3 cores and so 1055T will bottleneck HD6970 which is faster than 2x HD4870 in CF.

It will max all games except Metro 2033, and perhaps a few oddball terribly optimized games.

really? 1055t bottlenecking 6970?

Since 99% games use at most 3 cores, 1055T is no better than 955 in most games. In addition, HD6970 is faster than 2x HD4870 in SLI which is bottlenecked by PII-955 according to an old TOM review regarding "i7-920 vs PII-955". Hence, 1055T should bottleneck the 6970.

FSX is probably the only game that utilizes more than 4 cores IIRC.
