Just need a little help.....

I'm currently running a single radeon HD 6870 2GB. I can buy another 6870 for crossfire or purchase a single 7870 from newegg.
I would like to know which setup would give me the highest FPS.

More about : radeon 7870 crossfire 6870

6870 crossfire will give you more fps with some drawbacks

2 6870 on crossfire will use much more power than the 7850(also 7870 uses new architecture than consumes less power).
2 pcie slots will be used up instead of one
It will be hard to find the identical card you have now

If you have 2 pcie x16 slots and enough 6pin connector to power the 2 hd 6870 then you are good to go.
