Because I dont want to make other topic that is nearly same I will ask here:
So my spec:
i5 2500k
asus p8p67 pro b3
a-data gaming 1600 2x4GB
vertex 2 E 120 GB
Samsung F3 1TB
XFX black 850W modular
CM Dom 692 lite

Because I' am about to buy HD6970 CF or GTX570 SLI, I'm wondering what brand should I take. Best option I think is HD6970 because on 3 monitors it will run smoother than a GTX570 SLI. Another thing is that a lot of ppl burned their GTX570. At first I was thinking to buy Asus HD6970 DCu II but on CF that will cost me a lot of space, so now idk which brand should I take. There is no HD6970 Lightning yet(in Europe). I want to buy a brand that will give me low temps + low noise lv. If I wont be able to find a good brand for that HD6970 then GTX570 Twin Frozr II could be a good alternative?

6950 CF is faster or equal to a 570 SLI. A 6970 CF is faster than a 570 SLI.

Buy a 6950 CF and unlock them. You'll get the best of both world.

CF HD 6950 user here and for a reason. Price & performance. You get 100% scaling from the GPUs. Never even cared to look at the GTX 570 SLI setup.

6950 cards overclock past the 570. mine is at 1Ghz core and 1450 mem. and with unlocked shaders (no trouble at all...idiotproof) they really outperform the 570. CF i cant even imagine right now.

but these two cards, the 6950 and 570 are so close... its a matter of preference and fanboyism.
