Are you talking about single cards or running two 6850's together? Seems like two 6850's is overkill for most games. Single cards, of course, the 6970 would be the better choice.

Would be running two 6850's together. This would be to drive three 24 in screens for FSX needing 5760x1080 and highest quality setting.

✔ Best Answer
Since you already have one 6850, I would just add another. Make sure your power supply can handle two of them.

I agree with your suggestion. I have found a "Toms Hardware" review of 6950 & 6970 which gives just the comparison I wanted. Many thanks for your help.
