They are different series card BTW. Ares was just a show off for rich people. cronos177 May 4, 2011 2:29:09 AM 6990 much better choice thats the Top of the Line, if you got the 700$ and you want it go for it, you can always CF 2 6950 or something and get almost the same performance much cheaper tho.
