You get 90% of the power for 30% cheaper.

Should you need cuda, go NV.
Not budget minded, go NV.

SLI 580s is the better setup, but price/performance goes to 6970CF.

Wish they'd release the 2.5gb 570s outside of Asia already....

CF 6970 = 33.3k in 3dmark vantage
SLI 580 = 46.6k in 3dmark vantage

unlock x2 6950 = 500$
6970 x2 = 700$

SLI gtx 580 = 1000$

If cost isn't a problem then SLI 580's but the 6970s or unlocked 6950's are a far better value
