I have absolutely no clue where you're getting those prices from.

The best card in that group is the 570. Then the 6950. Then the 5870.

Why don't you get a 6970? It beats the 570 and is around the same price.

i think a 6850cf or 6870cf would be a lil faster but i always try to get the best single card i can afford 1card=less headaches than 2,if you were considering a 5870 the 6870 is pretty close when oced and better at dx11 so you could save sum cash i got mine for 220$ a few months ago,but if ur willing to spend go for the 6950 and unlock it ull get 6970 performance for 6950 price tag how can u beat that deal?
