MSI HD6950 2gb Crossfire Twin Frozr III PE/OC or MSI Gtx580 lightning
Oct 16, 2011, 8:31 AM
Hello, I'm going to be building a computer next month and was wondering which way to go.
How hot would the 2 6950s get and how much more power would they need?
Also, which option would you choose and why?

MSI GTX580 Lightning, its a great card, you can't go wrong.
One card is better than two for heat and power and also for quiter operation.

2 6950's are faster but I "personally" prefer 1 580 because it runs cooler,quieter and has less power consumption(and gives you the option to add another card later)
Can't find your answer ? Ask !
