I guess if it would REALLY make you happy, return the 6970 and get a gtx 570... but I don't think you'd honestly see any noticeable difference besides inner peace? That is what it is all about, right?
It's not like I'm sad with my HD6970, I'm really enjoying it.
But I kinda feel sad when I see all this HD6970 vs 570 threads, they're tied on gaming, yet everyone says 570... and I don't get why... 6970 is cheaper in europe and performs the same, yet it also scales better in CF.
And yeah, GPU folding even on a cool GTX460 it made my room feel like a toaster, 2600k folding alone now and I don't even notice
I think I will keep this HD6970, I can't return it now, and after seeing reviews of both cards, I shouldn't be sad about this beast
I may get her a new friend called Sapphire (Hey, im sapphire too baby) 6970 for CF in the next 2 months lol.
