    Would 2x5850's give me close to 6950 performance??

    I want a new card to play metro but i want to do it on the cheap :| obviously - its always better to get a 1 off powerful card to minimise issues with drivers n micro stutter etc etc in crossfire.

    how close with 2 5850's come to touching a stock 6950?

    The 5850's will demolish the 6950 no problem, but on Metro 2033, the 6950 will still win by a fair bit.

    Merry Xmas to everyone!

    I got a head-lamp, you know the one that attaches to your head (to work on rig's/get decent photo's with, as some of you know my photo taking skills need all the help they can get)

    And I got a 24 carat gold clipper to ad to the rest of my collection :D

    Oooh, and a new pen....

    Other than that I just got the gift of the children's smiles when they opened thier presents. And the gift of my daughter's shitty nappy at 4a.m.

    Just come off playing BC2: Vietnam - its kick ass - except hardcore mode is starting to make my blood pressure sky rocket - Im being spawn killed by a guy with a Uzi/Mac10 from half the map away. I know they rebalanced all the weapons not long ago. but this is silly. Also in vietnam - its easy to waste the whole fucking game trying to shoot down 1 chopper from the ground. compared to the chopper in BC2 its invinicible. the guns on the hueys are fucking retarded too - way overpowerd In the last 6hrs sitting here playing vietnam, I have been fucked over by a transport chopper (UH1???) more times then my entire time in BF2 and in BF2 the blackhawks had fucking mini guns but youd be lucky if they did you any serious damage to you.

    weapons needs rebalacing

    Those Twin Frozer stocks will never appear at that price, overclockers bought out the whole UK stock and was offering them at that price on pre-order, they got the stock in on Xmas Eve and the price is now £150, still a nice deal though.
