Graphics card debate...
Well, as of the moment I've got an HIS IceQ Turbo 6950HD 2GB card with a 256-Bit memory interface.
I'm thinking about getting two GTX-280's. Reason being, is that I bought one for a rig that I was building for someone and I really loved the card, the performance was incredible. The GTX-280 has got 1GB, with a 512-Bit interface which is twice the speed of the card I've got now. The GTX-280 RAM is only DDR3, and the 6950 is DDR5. However the GTX-280 ram is clocked twice as high. The only thing is that the core clockspeed on the GTX is 200mhz lower than the 6950.
I'm just having a really hard time deciding what to do... What are your guy's thoughts?

I thought this thread was about something completely different. Carry on.

I've never even heard of a 280.
I think it'd be better to keep the 6950 though; it may perform slightly under two 280s, but it's probably a lot smoother too. SLI typically doesn't have as many problems as Crossfire, but there are still issues. The 280 also doesn't have DirectX11 support if I'm not mistaken.

And I totally spaced the DirectX support. Although the 280 supports PhysX, which is something that I'm starting to like in games.
Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate it.
