I'm looking at upgrading my PC from a 5770. I play games at 1080P, with very high graphic settings. I usually play games like Need For Speed Shift 2, Hot Pursuit, and COD M2. I'm looking at an XFX Radeon HD 6950 1GB. Good card, or should I spring for better? Also what will I need for a PSU if I go CrossFireX?

System Specs:
Mobo: Asus M4A88TD-M/USB3 (Upgrading to a Asus M4A89TD Pro/USB3)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 (Upgrading to X6 1100T)
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
RAM: 2x Mushkin Enhanced 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz

Ive gone for the 6970 because im not confident with OCing it to 6970.
If you went for xfire i would get 750w, ive just got one 6970 and i7 2600k and im getting 750w, would have gone for 650 but the cpu is overclocked.

Also what psu you getting

If you want to crossfire two cards then I would say get at least a good 700W unit or 750W decent unit. Yes you can get by with less (look at the link below. If the PSU is 90% efficient that's 536W it's delivering for 6970s and 431W for 6950s) but not torturing your PSU will help it last longer ^_^
