Since I like things such as nHancer, I'm more likely to go with Nvidia when I do my spring upgrade but I've already bought 2 x 5870 and a 5970 so I'm hardly taking sides. I'd be happy if they were faster than they are to be perfectly honest with you.

PS : One thing to remember is that Fermi is a single GPU, so if it's faster than 285 SLI, it'll be kicking ATI squarely in the virtual bollocks as it takes a 2 GPU 5970 to beat 285 SLI.
You have 2 5870's AND a 5970?


Plus you yourself said that a single 5970 is about as a fast as sli'd 285's. Now you are saying it takes 2 x 5970 to beat an sli'd pair of 285's?
