I haven't bought another 6970---- yet. But it looks like I will just for BF3 and a few other games. It's just dispiriting when a company you have always loved-dating back to my old 1 Gzh Thunderbird- has dropped the ball so much. Bulldozer seems to be an absolute BUST and it doesn't make me happy. What does make me happy is the fact that my Nehalem i7 is still rocking and I don't need to spend any cash on anything other than the aforementioned additional 6970. It sucks but it's the truth--until the next-gen consoles come out, PC gaming is stuck in a bit of limbo because we're currently tied to crap ports due to ancient hardware.
