Do you plan to SLI/crossfire later? What resolution monitor are you using?

Any reason you'd not go with a cheaper version of either car? There are cheaper options for each. You can get one with a badass cooler, nonreference.

I'd suggest the gtx570 if you like to BOINC/FOLD or plan on keeping just one card, but if not and you plan on doing a 3 monitor setup someday the 6970's is supposed to be real good at 3 monitors. The Nvidia can only do this in SLI, not just with one card.

Slightly more performance for the same price and even cheaper sometimes, I'd go for the 6970


I do have to point out that you posted in the ATI forums, which is going to be ATI biased.

Also, looks like the cheapest current newegg deal is $325 after shipping and rebates, not that bad.

not bad either.

Pretty close performance. I'd say either one is a winner, and should play the upcoming games with ease at your resolution. You can't make the wrong choice. Just choose red or green.
