Default Re: The Official HD 6000 Series Review thread

Dual 6870's is starting to look extremely attractive to me.

Crossfire performance is absolutely stellar! On top of that, these cards seem to run away with the game on TWIMTBP games. How did AMD do that?!?!?!?

I awas actually considering getting another 5870 this Christmas if prices were right, but now, forget it. I'll give my fiance my old 5870, and I'll get 2 6870's. The value is way too good to ignore. It's like GTX 460 SLI on steroids!
