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.

you could try flashing them to 6970's,more cores,better performance.

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)

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).

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.
