Well if you fold at all, you would definitely want to get the GTX 570, however for most gamers getting a 6950 and then unlocking it is a much better option... I would go this with card myself:
Asus Radeon HD 6950

I currently own a 5850 myself and I love it's overclockability, which I am soon going to play around with a little more... however if we look at the benchmarks here in the popular game of Dirt 2... the 6950/70 just get obliterated by the GTX 570, making it an extremely compelling buy... this would be my choice after seeing what the benchmarks had to say:
MSI GeForce GTX 570 (The only Tri-SLI capable GTX 570 available for purchase on newegg)

Oh man... Out of all the games!!! asdnkajsfhgksj Dirt 2? :'(

OP, get the one that's the best bang for the buck. *cough* an unlocked 6950 *cough*
