I'm not knocking any card I'm just trying to point out that to say one is more "future proof" than another is just stupidity. In my original statement I said a card is only "future proof" if you're happy buying new games and not enabling all the effects. I used a bad example with Metro2033 as it's really only one effect but I think you just proved my point anyway.

They're both great cards.
Each has advantages and disadvantages when compared to the other.
Neither one is any more "future proof" than the other.

I just got my 2 570s today... I've never owned an ATI card much less the one in question so I can't personally comment on the performance of those cards but I can attest to the fact that for the money these 570s are absolute beasts that run cool and quiet.
