Awesome I think 6870 will be the way to go for me, anyone know about the second part of my question concerning if the AMD card actually has a greater combined performance when running alongside an AMD cpu and mobo? Or is that just marketing?

mcmurraym, that last question you asked is true if you bought a APU that is capable of crossfire with a dedicated gpu other than that nope.
Ok, thank you very much for all the info I know where I am headed now with my purchase.
