Whats better than two HD 6950's?

hey guys, it may be time for me upgrade since i have a terrible case of OCD when it comes to running everything on ultra at 60fps i was wondering if someone could answer this for me

I happen to currently have a pair of Crossfirex'd HD 6950's 2g. i was wondering if there is any single graphics card that would be worth the buy that would perform better than these two guys together that i have had for a while.

i have been saving up fro a while so let me know if there is anything worth the buy, or if i should just wait it out a while longer.

  1. you could try flashing them to 6970's,more cores,better performance.
  2. That's what i had in mind when i got them but i'm not sure i want to risk it.

    crossfired 6950's will be on the top tier cards level. You will have to wait at least another generation to get something better.(anyways waiting a generation would fit the 2 generation upgrade rule i tend to advise)

    yea, you're probably right. ill see what other people have to say about it but i have a feeling im going to be sticking with these cards for a while longer.
  7. Why you need to replace them now? Its still very good. Wait for next gen and after Crysis 3 game arrive. It will require a lots of gpu power(I hope not).
  8. I don't NEED to replace them, i was just wondering if it is worth it to get something better. i still run like everything on max i guess, but based on everyone's response i should just keep em for now.
