Depends on the res of your monitor. What are looking to play games at now and/or in the future?

At 1080 it's hard to recommend a single 6970 over a single 570.
At a higher res and dual cards, 6970 all the way.

Well it depends...they are pretty much on par...if you like CUDA/Physx/Folding go for 570...if you need eyefinity and play on higher res go for 6970 due to 2 GB of VRAM biggrin.gif
