You can get non-reference 570's with upgraded VRM's.
Pretty sure you will find games like Metro and crysis will use over 1gb at the higher settings and 1080p resolution.

Crysis 1 maybe, never played it. Crysis 2 does not. Well, the Demo atleast. Maybe the final release has more graphic options that cause heavy vRAM usage.

6970 no doubt. It's faster. GTX 570 has cheap VRMs and it's slower than 6970 even in single vs. single card.

I ended up with an Asus 6950 Directcu II as the performance difference is marginal between 6970 and 6950.

$400 ASUS HD 6970 DirectCU AMD suggest a 550 watt PSU with one 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector.

$350 ASUS GTX570 DirectCU Nvidia suggest a 500 watt PSU with two 6-pin power connectors.
Just a slight clarification. The 570 Direct CU II uses one 8-pin and 6-pin just like the 6970.

I beg to differ, having more vram dosen't improve FPS in games, it's only higher resolution monitors that you will see a difference in benchmarks.
True. Most games won't hit the VRAM bottleneck. However, newer games like DA2 and F1 will choke on 570 SLI with triple monitor displays.
