I would imagine that sapphire made a great version.

The HD 6990 isn't being sold any more. Is there any reason you want one? FWIW they're overpriced and outdated now.

I would wait for the 8990 if you can wait till the end of this year.

I was wanting a 6990 as it just seems to fit my build. Plus it fits to my motherboard specifications, where as anything 7000+ is PCI-E 3.0, which my motherboard doesn't have and would just become a waist/bottlenecked (assuming with that statement there).

Can you list the rest of your spec here?


I am pretty sure a system that can handle a 6990 will handle a 7970.

PCI-E2.0/2.1 cannot and will never be able to bottleneck a 7970, or GTX 680, or even a GTX Titan for that matter... Just get a 7970 Ghz eddition or even the normal 7970 for that matter.

PCIe 2.0 is more than enough for any card out right now (and in the near future). Even a GTX 690 wouldn't be affected by it.

Hey guys, considering that the 7970 can run on PCI-E 2.0, what 7970 card should I be looking at?
