+1!

2500k/Z68, twin 6950s would be a fairly formidable gaming rig indeed....

In my opinion, about the most well thought out gaming performance one could possibly achieve on $1200 or so....

it very well is! but will it work with the i5 and the motherboard? because it says the chipset for the 6950s is for AMD, so is this compatible with the i5?

this wont be an issue. there is no problem running amd cards on an i5-2500k system. im doing it right now.
