Hacksaw is quite right, AMD in their bold attemt to wow unsuspecting buyers into buying their refreshed lineup by confusing them into thinking they were buying the next up card for the next down price is really screwing people that dont do their homework.

5970 = dual gpu on single pcb card
6970 = single gpu on single pcb aka 5870.
all other 6xxx series cards you can basically drop a model from the 5 series card an thats what your actually getting.

If your actually talking about crossfire, then this waterblock will allow you run your loop with two GPUs.
