GTX570 and HD6970 are quite equal, GTX570 wins some, HD6970 wins others, however so far HD6970 wins by being quieter, less power usages and generates less heat.
Sure pick the GTX570 of those two, but its like asking GTX570 or GTX470, not in the same price range, not in the same performance range..
where did u get this data? every review i read had the gtx 570 come in cooler, quieter, and less power hungry. plus the 570 OCed better. at +20$ the 6970 was a real disappointment, since it should have been across-the-board as good as or better than the 570. from what i saw all reviews had them 50/50 at gaming benchmarks overall.
i'm comparing it to the 6950 because right now, imo, they're ATI/nVidia's best offerings for value/$. yes the 6950 is a bit slower and wasn't meant to compete with the 570 but it's a lot cheaper too while not losing that much performance. the 6970 DOES compete with the 570 but just isn't worth its price tag
