I currently have this card: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1...
I am thinking of buying the same card in order to CrossFire the two of them.

I'm wondering if this is a good idea or if I should go with a new GPU altogether, also if you think I should go with a single card what one is a good upgrade from the one i already hold?

mobo: Gygabyte GA-P67X-UD3-B3
GPU: Sapphire HD6870 1GB
PSU: Corsair 750W
CPU: Intel i5 2500k

Thanks in advance.

I'm a big advocate of sticking to a single GPU if it can get you the performance you want, so I'd just say go for a new card.

Which one depends on what games you're wanting to play, what settings & resolution you want to play at, and how much money you want to spend.

Well lets say a want to spend a max of about £300? And I hope to run games in high/est settings?
I realize I should get off my ass and look for myself but im not sure what would be a good step up from my current one, and also which card will last long enough to make it worth the purchase. Thanks again for your help.

For 300 pounds you can more or less get whatever you want...

7970s/670s will max basically everything smoothly at 1080p or lower resolution and perform WAY better than 6870 crossfire.

If you can find the new 7870LE at its MSRP of under 200 pounds, it's probably the best value for your money right now:

Ok I think I found the card for me! Sapphire ATI HD 7950. This review: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2050/14/ speaks quite highly of it. Thanks for you help once again BigMack.
