Why even post?

All the negative 570 comments are from blatantly obvious fanboys, you think people actually take that advice, let alone even finish reading thier comments? Lol. There are plenty of 570 overclock threads and 9/10 owners are very happy with no issues. No one really pays attention to what a couple AMD kiddies have to say in a seperate thread...sorry.

I don't have love for either company, it must be earned.

Funny that AMD people love making a big deal about the people who got faulty 570's. It happens with any card except the 570 has a special FUD thread where it gets blown out of proportion when someone gets a faulty card or abuses their card to death. I bet more 6950's got bricked flashing to a 6970 but people still recommend doing that. Anyways the 69xx series was saved from total failure by 2gb of vram. The 570/580 are faster at resolutions most people play at, have better stock coolers, Physx, Cuda, Folding, better tessellation, better image quality, and better drivers. I had a 570 and an unlocked 6950 for a week to compare them and it was an easy choice. Oh and AMD cards also have OCP google it.

Wow you all blow my mind.......

Please back to the subject would be awesome guys.

Would a 6950/560 bottleneck on my q8300@2.7ghz?

You can keep living under your rock. Flashing a 6950 is different than doing a small OC on the 570 and the card blows up. Nice comparison.

570 and 590 both crap VRMs. Also, how do you explain the lack of VRAM? Obviously Nvidia had to cheap out on a lot of stuff to stay competitive.

No, that would run just fine. If you are unsure you can just give it a small OC to 3Ghz.
