What in my assessment do you think is not true?
I don't think the OP would like bias opinion, as it seems to favor one product over the other, not because of performance but because of personal preference.

6970 crossfire if you game at high resolution.
570 if you game at lower resolution.

@ 1920x1200 the 6970 and 570 is evenly match. With CF/SLI the lead goes to the 6970. Go to search and type 6970 vs 570 benchmark and you'll see a benchmarks by OCN members. Google and you'll see several other benchmark with similar results as well. It'll all depend on personal preference. If you game on multi-monitor then 6970 is your best choice. If you game on a single monitor then go for the 570.

Ya know, I don't know why so many people are talking about physx like it's so great. If you look at my sig rig then you know I have a physx card running with my 6950. I used the dedicated physx for Batman Arham Asylum and to be honest w/ or w/o physx the game look incredible. It's minor details that doesn't even matter for 95% of the gamers. If physx is so great then let me ask everyone here... would you have 1 high end graphic card and 1 physic card or would you rather have 2 high end graphic card running sli or crossfire?

At 1600P, The 570 is on average as fast, sometimes faster then a 6970.

Enough to write home about? No.

The Radeons only have an advantage when you start talking more then 2 displays, and resolutions higher then 1600P. Period.

Both good solutions.

Nothing I said has anything to do with opinion.

I said single monitor 570s, 3 monitors 6970s just like you.

What I posted about ATi's 3d is true:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ts,2776-3.html

Quote:
there are no dedicated 3D monitors in North America that employ the HDMI 1.4 standard—all of the available 3D monitors at the moment are Nvidia 3D Vision-exclusive...you can game at 1080p with up to 24 frames per second per eye. That's actually pretty severe, considering we've been playing around with 5760x1080 using 3D Vision Surround
What I posted about ATi promising and not delivering GPU accelerated physics since X1900 days in 2006 is true as well:
http://techreport.com/discussions/10117

Quote:
ATI is calling a "boundless gaming" experience. GPU-based physics acceleration is nothing new, of course; NVIDIA announced its support of Havok FX back in March. However, ATI says its approach is far superior to that of NVIDIA
I guess it's true that it is only my opinion that 3d Vision Surround trump 6 panel gaming, but 3d Vision Surround is pretty freaking amazing:

Quote:
In games that are “3D Vision-ready,†the experience is as profound as going from a 2D VGA card to a 3D graphics accelerator. I BS you not. If this technology didn’t have such a steep barrier to entry in its cost, I can guarantee you’d be all over it.
So there's at least a chance I'm right about that. I like 3 panel EyeFinity fine, it's just when you play on the 6+ panel versions the bezels split up the main action.

I left out forcing ambient occlusion on NVIDIA, but not ATi:
http://www.behardware.com/articles/7...occlusion.html




So for me, when similar performance is at hand, I look at differences in features.

Depends on your interest of pleasure

SLI for 3D Vision/Surround, PhysX or

Crossfire for Eyefinity or

Just for gaming performance, SLI or Crossfire would be an excellent choice
