I am building a new rig. But i still cant decide on what graphics card i want to use. I was thinking of buying 2 AMD 6850's. But i really just want to go with the gtx 570 because i love Nvidia. I've always went with them. :??:

Hello

Take a look here at this comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/302?vs=306

The HD6850 CF solution looks slightly faster but there's not much in it, I'd personally go for the GTX570 to save yourself from any multi GPU/Driver issues.

Thanks man! :)  But i already have 1 6850. So if i would go CF i would just need to spend 150$ but for the GTX 570 its 280$... IDK! :(

Oh right, well If your motherboard and PSU supports CF HD6850's then that seems like the most logical option and save $130.

The 6850cf is a lot better than a single gtx 570 by looking at these benchmarks lol

Apart from Crysis there's only about 10-20% in it, not what I would consider "a lot better"

10-20 % can be the difference between 45 and 60 fps, and obviously 60 fps is a lot smoother.

if you have already one HD 6850 then get another one best performance for less money.
