Default Radeon HD 6970

Would the Radeon HD 6970 Video card be a good choice to go with the Asus croshair IV motherboard.? CPU is the AMD 1100.

all you gotta do is make sure whatever RAM and CPU combination you use don't end up bottlenecking the card. The 1100T is a good CPU choice and it would be very unlikely to create a bottleneck.

But you see what i mean, no point using a HD 6990 4GB GDDR5 with a Pentium Dual.

is the 6970 4gb a newer version of 5970 4gb?
i wish to buy one of these and im shure the 6970 is dx11 and more future proof??
i just need a great gpu that will last for a few years on any game maxed out.
i have i7 950 and 6gb corsair ram so im not shure what is the bottleneck.

It'll work fine. It really just depends on your usage, whether or not you need a card of that caliber.. Personally I think that card is way overkill, but it's up to you. If you have the money, then go for it, just make sure that you have a good, reliable PSU to back it up.

Hmm. It appears to be a good power supply, but I'm not familiar with the brand. Provided it's a reliable brand, you should have far more power than you'll ever use :P
