slower than the 6970? The benches ive seen, on Anandtech, hardware heaven, even youtube videos, the 570 is at the least, equal to the 6970, if not faster. The only time ive seen the 570s fps dip below the 6970s was again, in resolutions 2560x1600 and higher, and i find the 6970, along with other radeon cards, to be to exclusive to particular gaming because it has features not everyone can take advantage of, eyefinity for example, a great feature but will i ever use it, not likely. The 570 is the 580's little brother, a little brother im gunna overclock and make match the 580, plus, im getting 2 570s ive decided...Dont get me wrong, love ATI, but Nvidia is a better, all around route to go, its almost like gaming and computers are geared towards nvidia, everey single computer you see sold in bestbuy, compusa, etc....all run off of nvidia chipsets, you go on newegg and look at nvidia cards and there's 6 extra pages over ATI......going with the 570s and theyre gunna be awesome, its superior to the 6970, 'nuff said...
