GTX 580 or 5970 (modded)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need a new card for my system and have 2 options I am considering.
The first would be to buy a new GTX 580, second option would be to buy my friends used 5970 (with the accelero xtreme) for 499$. The card has never been overclocked and he would provide me with 3 months of warranty (money back if it craps out).

Which one should I get?

The 5970 smashes the 580

After checking the bot it seems there pretty equal.
