...That chart you provided shows the 5970 dipping below 30FPS a lot, and to 25 or lower at least 7 times. That is not something I want to deal with.
What levels of AA are you running on Stalker? And are you running regular MSAA or edge detect? Transparency as well?

P.S. - Everyone knows that ATI struggles with Metro as Nvidia got first dibs on it, and they were running 12xAA. I didn't post the chart to show minimums of that particular game but to illustrate what kind of a graph you guys should be observing minimums with. I think you know as well as I do that that's an aberration.

More Metro results:

The 4xx series do appear to be strong on the minimums which is a great thing. But the cases in which a 470 is higher on the low end than a 5970 should be extremely rare. They're clearly higher on 5970 in that graph, for instance.
