I'm at a stand still... I have always gone with ATI, had 1 bad card, one really great card. All I've heard is how NVIDIA is really great.
The cards I've been looking at are the HD6970 and the HD6990 (if it goes down in price by October). In addition I've heard good things about the NVIDIA GTX570 and GTX580. (potential for 590 if the price goes down)
What I"m wondering is what would be a good choice for performance and price.
If I go with an HD6970 I would look into crossfire in the future. The same goes with the GTX570 I would look to do SLI. That is another consideration I want to look into. Which is better in performance and compatibility.
