170 for GTX 570 is not a good deal. Get a Sapphire HD 7950 boost for 300 (280 after rebate). you also get 3 fantastic games for free. the HD 7950 boost matches GTX 670 at stock. overclocked HD 7950(1.15 Ghz) beats overclocked GTX 670(1.3 Ghz).

"At 1920x1200 the GeForce GTX 670 is 12% faster than the Radeon HD 7950 and just 2% faster than the 7950 Boost. However the GTX 670 is 27% more expensive than both cards, so whichever way you slice it the Radeon HD 7950 Boost is the better proposition and things just get worse for the GTX 670 as the resolution is increased."

the sapphire hd 7950 boost has a good cooler. very positive user reviews. most users are running at 1.1 - 1.15 Ghz overclocks at stock voltage. at those speeds its faster than HD 7970 Ghz.

at the same clocks HD 7950 is 3 - 6% slower than HD 7970.

$170 for a 570 is a pretty good deal, but I wouldn't get it. 570's have very little vram which is going to hold you back in some games, just save your money and get a 7950/7970, they are the best bang for the buck these days thumb.gif
