So i wait for weeks, i finally am at the right place at the right time for the nowinstock notification where I get my order in for 2 6990's seconds from getting the notification. Credit card charged, packaged sent. I open the box and BOOM: 2 6970s in the box. Called newegg. Nothing they can do but say sorry and give me a refund. Sucks!

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Wow, that's complete BS.

If you want to set up a mining op quickly though, I'd keep the 2 cards and ask them to refund the remaining $1k dollars (assuming 800 bucks per 6990 and 300 per 6970) and start mining right away.

Then add the 6990 once they get them in stock & keep 200 bucks.

Two 6970s should have a higher hashing rate than one 6990.  I wouldn't necessarily return them.

Not really, if you OC the 6990.

You can get 410-430 mhash/s per core, about in line with what a single 6970 would get overclocked.

Specs wise a 6990 is two full 6970 cores as well (1536 shaders each).
