I've just bought 2 more 1080p monitors and i'm looking around for some more grunt to run them. I can get a 5970 for about nz$400 - 500 or a 6970 for 450 - 550. what is the performance of these two cards in eyefinity? I'm more than happy to run with aa and af off. the 5970 I think has more grunt but I've heard a few comments that it doesn't do very well in eyefinity for some reason... also I could go crossfire however I don't have a crossfire board which would be another nz$167
what would you recommend? I'm happy to take other suggestions obviously but I think those are the two best options for me, could be wrong so suggest away
currently I have x4 965be @ 3.7 8gb ddr3 5770

AMD CPU's have trouble handling multi-GPU setups so my personal recommendation would be the 6970 or if you can afford it the dual fan 7950 from Sapphire. Good luck
Difference will be even bigger in Eyefinity and the 3gb buffer will help even more. The 7950 can be overclocked like crazy (this particular model is real quiet and will let you push your card). It's up to you really.
