Although a couple of 6950's unlocked and in crossfire would probably rape it.
Yea. A couple 6950 2GB cards, unlocked or not, would beat a 5970 easily at higher resolutions. At lower res, and on DX9 or 10, I'm not so sure. Remember That each of those 6950's have double the framebuffer than the 5970 has, and they use that extra memory very well.

And you're right about Tessellation. The 68 and 69 series are superior compared to the 5800's for tessellation.

Also, Rollo, you're on my ignore list. I'm tired of reading your green garbage. I didn't come here to entertain trolls.
