an SLI setup only beats out a 6970 by like 7 FPS, which isn't much. I would have the option later to upgrade to another 6970. So which one would you guys select if you were building a new system? My CPU selection is AMD X6 1090T.
This is an interesting choice, probably a draw value-wise from a straight performance standpoint.
The GT560 SLi is $150 more, but offers a good deal more performance at times.
For example, the 7fps you noted at Metro 19X12 4X is a 33% increase over the 6970. More importantly, the setting that is actually playable (16X10 4X) has the 560 SLi at 37fps (playable) and the 6970 at 26fps (not).
I'm using two of the 2GB Palit GTX560s in my 57X10 3d Surround rig now, it's a pretty impressive solution. A lot of graphics horsepower for five hundred-odd bucks.
