  1. 6990 is a pointless overkill. Get SLI 570/580's, CF 6950/6970s... but stay away from 6990.
  2. i personally would prefer 2x 6970's in crossfire that way if you have issues with games you can disable the crossfire where as the 6990 you cant.

    that being said however a friend of mine has a 6990 and is very happy with it, he upgraded from a 4870x2 (also a dual gpu card)
  3. Also: 2133 RAM is not needed. No difference over 1600 RAM.
  4. thanks for the info and I'll change the ram to 1600 ram. thanks again
