Before I came here I was running cf Sapphire 6970's....I sent them back due to micro stutter I was having in BFBC:2. After that I went with the 570 HD Super clocks in sli and also sent those back because they were some hot little buggers.
Now I'm currently running 570 Classified sli on my Bedroom PC and only 1 580 3gb Classified for my main pc because I sent one back.....
I've owned 3 different brands of 570's; MSI TF:III, HD 570, and Classified. I have to say that the MSI TF:III was the best overall card I've owned so far. I would say the 580 Classified, but it's way overpriced in my opinion.
Based on my experience, I prefer Nvidia because you just get more for what you pay for. I'm not knocking AMD, but you can find a TON of threads on this forum about AMD users buying a low end nvidia gpu to pair with their AMD card just so to run Physx....When you're doing that, the price/performance goes out of the window.
1x 570 (W/cuda,3d, physx and surround)= $300-$330 avg.
1x 6970 (w/eyefinity) + GTS 450 for pyhsx = $480 avg.
