Hi all, I currently have a lone Sapphire 6870 powering an eyefinity display at 5780x1920. It can't quite handle some games (As i expected when i purchased it), so I was wondering at this point: Will I get better performance from buying a second 6870 and crossfiring them, or would i get more out of a brand new card like a 6950? Possibly a 6970 but that's a bit out of my price range.

Really hoping that the second 6870 will yield better results because thats much more affordable!

A card with 2GB VRAM would help a lot at that resolution.
