Ok so im running two Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5870's and im going to upgrade because someone is buying them.
does anyone out there have any suggestions on whats good on the market right now, most of the time i dont like buying something that no one has tried yet. Im not really familar with Nvidia but if someone makes a suggestion to it ill look into it.
So what should i upgrade to that will be far better that my two 5870s that i have right now. thank you very much

if you need anything else please feel free to ask
2 x 6950 will be a fairly small upgrade over 2 x 5870. The 6950's scale much better than the 5870's but the difference is small enough that its hard to recommend. It's a great combo though and probably your best bet if you can't wait. I think Sapphire has a nice reference 6950 with the dual-bios switch.
But I would totally wait a couple weeks for the 7970 to become available. Try one of those (they'll be expensive) and get a 2nd later if you like. All indications are the 7970 is going to be a LOT faster than the 6970 (and it better be considering its price!).
yea thats has been my problem when i got this card, because its to powerful to really try to upgrade because of the unnecessary price for a GPU 6xxx seires card. But the 7970 looks flipping crazy! thats probally what i go with in the near future.
does anyone know the release date of the 7970 i cant find it on AMDs web site? or is it already out?
Sweet looks like i know what im saving up for. It was ether a new video card or HDD, and because of the price climb in hard drives and me not wanting to deal with Raid arrays for SSDs, this seems like the best option for an upgrade. Other than the new Eight core CPU from AMD.
