One can do F1 2010 and BC2 GREAT, but then do Starcraft II crappy.

But overall I am pretty happy with how well this 5970 has served me, I never even OC'ed it as I never felt I needed it...


i have my 5970 working perfect with the drivers i had to wipe windows 7 out and pretty much installed the ati drivers first than install windows update

I did the same thing - traded my 5970 for a GTX580 recently, then sold the GTX580 and purchased a 6970.

I'm currently going 27" eyefinity and plan to add a 6990 for some tri-fire goodies!

I never even used it. I just did the deal as a way to get out from under my 5970. I know it's debatable but from the benches I have seen the 2GB of VRAM on the ATI cards as opposed to 1.5GB on the GTX cards makes a big different in very large resolutions. Also, the crossfire scaling is putting them on par or even better than the 580's in SLI. If I was just using 1 card I would go with the GTX580.
