    wait i never said a 6950 could run it maxxed and if i did it was a typo.

    i was saying a single 6970 can give the same performance as 2x 5850s in metro 2033, other then that it takes 2x gpus.

    I agree. And seeing what cryis would look like on an urban setting with Crysis2, Metro 2033 looks better.

    I think it will, but it might be something like a single 5850 plays BC2, turn off HBAO turn AA way down, which honestly if you keep moving, with a high res AA isn't noticeable, and HBAO isn't really noticeable unless you stop and stare. But I do like to play my games pegged to the max.

    You had said
    which you did have an s at the end, but when I talk about new cards I say stuff like "the new 6950's own", even though I'm talking about just a single card. So I assumed you meant one.

    But yeah, thats why I bought my 2GB 6950, I had dual 5850's and I been trying to move to a 2GB setup for a while to future proof.


    I would have to agree.

    That dx11 DoF is a sin to humanity. Eats up a lot of horsepower, but all it does is make dof finer and accurate.

    The standard dof transition was like: clear, immediate cut off, then blur. The dx11 dof was: clear, a little clear, a little blurred then blur. But it wasnt really that much of a day night difference

    I'm running it pretty well and haven't seen any hangs yet. The only thing I have turned down is I have it set at high
    instead of very high. Looks pretty damn good though. What enviroment is the most taxing on the system ?

    By the way the deal is over :wtf:
