i have a decent powersupply with not so bad rating on it: Cooler Master GX lite 600w wich does all fine with my rigs its maybe a singlerail and wouldnt handle a crossfire but who care at 70$~ (69.90chf actually) why bother crossfire 6950 atm keep it single and wait next gen.
well i reckon its my opinion only soooo im right for me but not for all (or im right for all and not for me ... wait??? errhh...)
I am not really that kind of buyer.When I had to choose a GPU months ago I was between the 6950 and 7870.About same performance for half the price!And 6950's were unlockable too.Why pay more just to have the latest gen?
And for the crossfire:Getting a 7970 Ghz edition for example.For the same price I can crossfire two 6950's which are almost 6970's when unlocked and get performance close to a 6990 which by far superior to a single 7970 Ghz edition.
Same for the 8xxx series coming up they will be too expensive because they are "New" and you can get better performance for less money by the previous gen (as long as there are no major improvements like a new DX support like from 4xxx series to 5xxx series).
