The 260 saved me. I'm def going to wait and grab a 6970. Anything to do when installing and going from green to red?

Nope, just make sure you've fully removed your Nvidia drivers and its library files.

Right now I have gone back and forth over which route to go. The 580 was pretty much fine for everything I did, granted at 1440 I can't crank everything up but I was content. Now that it is on its way out I am looking at 7970, 590 or another 580.

I am a bit hesitant to spend the same $500 on a 580 that I spent a year ago so the 7970 is more attractive but I can't wait three weeks just to order it.

A 590 is much more money but is still way ahead of the 7970, the only reviews I see are from release - have they gotten better? What about drivers? Newer games? The 590's in the 7970 reviews all seem to be performing better than the original tests.

Any suggestions?

 

It's not absolute the 580 is dying because it crashes under any load. It could be many things from PSU, Forceware, RAM, motherboard, temepratures, OS etc, unless you have ruled them out.

I'm sure it's the card. Tested others, tried it in another system etc.

7970 it is then.

Now I have research the nv to Amd process

It's not a diificult choice, for a single screen 2560x1600/1440, if you need Cuda and PhysX get a GTX580/590, if no and can wait for 7970/50 or 7990.

I mean... it works as intended, but only when it wants to or when ATI wants it to.

4XXX cards were great for CFX, 6XXXX Cards are great for CFX, the problems are limited to the 5XXX series cards. None of the others have problems.
