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)
