With a 6970, you'll have a smoother experience at a fraction of the cost of a GTX580. Plus once drivers improve, and you can unlock the voltage, the 6970 will probably be just as fast as the GTX580 at lower resolutions. You could say go with the GTX570, but in the end, 1.2GB falls way short of 2GB of the 6970. It's a no brainer, 6970 is the better option.

Hey, I'm all for a single GPU solution, I just mentioned that because YOU recommended dual 6950's and good luck having that run stable at all times.
For HIS resolution, the choice is clear a 570, that extra ram doesn't mean much unless u're at higher resolutions, and I've already shown that the 6970 doesn't win everything at the higher resolutions, but in fact, the 570 does.
anyway, all the info is here alreadyEdited by 2010rig - 12/22/10 at 12:09pm
