hi Skarms

 

this is a difficult choice to make.at lower resolutions the GTX570 is in general the better performer and at 1920 x 1200 the HD6970 wil give you better performance because it has more VRAM.both are great cards and will last for a while depending at what resolution yo game.both wil OC well if you plan to do so and i think the HD 6970 wants a bit more power.

 

what is the rest of your setup and what brand power supply do you have and how many watts?

Being that there is only a $20 difference between those cards you negate the cost savings with similar performance of the GTX 570. So I would go with the 6970 given these two options.

I think I've had just about every card type, but 3 years is stretching it.

 

Either is good, but I'd go with the GTX 570.
