According to the msi site you have no choice to go with a 6950 if you want to run 2 cards as it doesn't support sli.
Site is wrong as it simply doesn't include an SLI bridge but the board itself supports SLI as confirmed as an MSI Rep on [H]. Users have reported SLI working.
Linus from NCIX also confirms it:
NCIX FORUMS - SLI? - MSI P67A-G45 (B3) P67 ATX LGA1155 DDR3 2...
Get a 2GB 6950. End of story.
2GB 6950 especially if you are going to add another. The 6950's scale much better in crossfire (almost keep up to sli gtx 580's at high res) than the 560ti's in sli. There is no other choice 6950 is better... even if you go 1 gig they scale better (I recommend 2 then maybe you can unlock them and run 6970's and then you will get better performance than 2 gtx 580's|)
Honestly though at that resolution I'd wait til I can afford a 6970 (or buy a used 6950 that you know unlocks) because you really only need one of them to run 1920x1200
