More about should 6990
  1. Personally as I understand it, the Crossfire set up would be better for gaming, whereas the Single 6990 would be more beneficial for video encoding tasks as well as give you more bang for your buck in gaming when crossfire/sli is unsupported or for single monitor play/use.
  2. I would go with a single 6990, then in the future when you see a decrease in performance drop in another. I see no reason in putting two GPUs in at once for gaming. Savethe money let the prices fall some more then get it
  3. Upgrade your RAM to 16GB
    Get faster SSD at 240GB
    with the $700 rather than getting 6990...
  4. legend if i did that i would have any GPU XD
