Going to think about it if I should buy the card but it's my only upgrade option. The fact is I don't need any upgrade for my 1080p gaming resolution with HD 5970.

I like the extra 2GB GDDR5 on HD 6990 and about 2x better tessellation.
5970 is still a monster card too tbh, not sure if it's worth the step up.

I wish they would work on their reference coolers too. If your selling a premium card at that price point, would it be so difficult to put a nice twin fan solution on it. An extra $5 on the cost won't make a difference if your already willing to pay that price to start with.
