I can vouch for bf3 maxing out a 570s vram at 1080p Typically I sit around 1200mb usage with everything on ultra and 4xaa which I could probably just turn off but ya it aint broken, not fixing it. With 1 570 you wont be maxing the game out, Im sli just in case you were hoping to max it on one card...

HD6970 shines if you run in high resolution, it does a little performance impact but the 570 will be eating 6970's dusts. Can't keep up due to limited VRAM. And with the Preview driver, it performs close to 580. Like a non-existent GTX575.

Even steven, hence similar pricing. Both over clocked can equal STOCK 580 performance. Bear in mind the 580 can be heavily over clocked and pulls away in SLI or not either way. Benchmarks by reviewers don't take into consideration over clocking. So that theory that two 6970's in SLI can almost match performance of 580's in SLI is not entirely acurate.

GTX 570's do come in 2.5GB VRAM where on multiple monitors will pull away from the 6970 anyway. Since your getting two eventually three monitors isn't an issue. So that's another scenario debunked.

Back to your choices. Here's a logical way to look at two cards with same performance. The answer actually lies with the purchaser who should ask themselves this question.

IF your looking into possible multiple monitors and IF your choosing between the 2GB vs the 1.25GB VRAM cards, then go AMD. IF your looking at the 2GB vs the 2.5GB VRAM then go Nvidia.

IF your looking into possible 3D gaming and watching 3D blu-ray movies then hands down go Nvidia. On a single monitor there's very marginal difference between VRAM as anything under 1920x1080p isn't utilizing it like multiple monitors.

IF your not looking into either option, then flip a coin. Seriously go with what you like or like to try instead.

Hey you can try either option for 30 days, most good retailers will take it back for refund or at the very least store credit. Either way you decide your going to be happy and you won't need to look back with remorse or doubt.

Hope this little analogy helps. Naturally peoples choices varies and in some cases is better than others. Hence why it's really up to your probable usage for the card that must be taken into consideration in making the decision that suits you best.

I remember reading your post, Corsair is hands down right up there with EVGA for customer warranty and customer support. Awesome how they stand behind their products. Good experiences goes a long way.

Good luck and make sure you finally update this thread with your decision as I'm always curious to find out the results.

Just note that the 570 has had issues with the VRMs under heavy overclocks. Much like the 590. As long as you don't plan on pushing these beyonds well beyond recommended voltages, either or is a good choice.
Only on the reference cooler/PCB like the one EVGA used.

Yeah it does, mine went up to 1250MB, but it doesn't cause any issues does it, I ran the beta on ultra at 1600x1200 and it ran perfect. BF3 will use as much vram as it can get and needs, but it won't go over and ruin your performance. So you can max the beta on one card because I've done it, but the proper game will have better graphics.
