I'm going straight to the point cuz I have to act within 3 days...

Thinking about returning the 6970 Lightning (unopened) for a full refund of $386 (free return shipping) and buy the following:


1) ASUS 6870 DirectCU $220 + Plextor PX-M2 SATA3 SSD 64gb $165 = $385

OR

2) MSI GTX 560 Hawk $265 + Crucial C300 SATA3 64gb $120 = $385

OR

3) Keep the 6970 Lightning and just buy a SSD during fall of this year.


EDIT: Please ignore this thread/poll...I've decided to keep the 6970 Lightning I can continue to roll with my "slow poke" HDs. By the late fall/early winter, the prices of the SATA3 SSDs should be more pleasing to the eyes...and the wallet

I would just keep it. SSDs will probably be cheaper by this fall.
