Hi I am currently running two hd-6990. They are extremely noisy and some time hot too. They do use lots of electricity. But bottom line is I am not at all concern about these disadvantages. I have good coolers of heat and a good sound system/Headphones. I play with 5760X1080 resolution. These monster cards are able to run all games on max settings.

I was going through some forums. Its was mentioned that a 7970GHZ is more powerful then a HD6990.

Its it true ?

overall I'd say it's too close to call, maybe by a little (HD 7970 GHz) THOUGH NOT BY MUCH..
in a few specific games like BF3 the HD 6990 does better.
look here:

so the game and resolution plays a little bit of a factor in the better GPU as well.
factor in power consumption and other perks for the HD 7970 GHz over the HD 6990.

Do I need any upgrade from a crossfire 6990 setup ? I know that I may not required a upgrade now, but at bigger resolution high-end graphics cards also don't last long.
