It is not worth buying if you compare it price wise to 2 x HD6950!

No! But if you have a limit on slots then it is the obvious choice for a price premium!

If you're going to wait 6 months, buy the next gen.

i have two slots thats why i was thinking one hd 6990 just incase i need to do another upgrade on the video card and add a 6970 but if i wont have to upgrade for another 3-4 years with the dual 6950 solution then i guess that would be a good choice but if not wouldnt it be better to go for the 6990

When you need to add another HD6990 is two generations down the line and you will just get the new fancy card with all the new tech.

Buy a 6950, wait 6 months, replace it with 2 6990s for 1/4 of the price.
