As many gtx 570's I've seen the mods burn up and say they are complete FAIL, I would pick up the 6850 and unlock it.

From what I've seen, they only put 4 phases on the gtx 570, and that isn't enough to handle the STOCK card for a super long time.

Either 6850, gtx 480, or gtx 580 period.

Not sure you got any real help. The two guys with ATI/AMD cards say buy the HD 6950 and the guy with the Nvidia card says buy the GTX 570. It seems to be all opinion with little true difference. I sat buy the 570 but then again I own an Nvidia card. LOL, can't trust a word I say.

Is this true? I'd like to see some numbers before taking that at face value.

I've never owned an ATI card, so I can't comment from experience, but... I've been seeing a lot of threads complaining about ATI driver problems with their current gen cards.

Also, Nvidia took SLI scaling to new heights with the 400 and 500 series (ie. SLI-ing GTX 460s can yield up to a 90% performance gain in some games).
