EVGA GeForce GTX 570 SuperClocked 1280MB GDDR5 329.99 inc VAT

Both the same price but the 6970 has more on-board memory, Faster memory clock speeds, Faster clock core & over three times the Stream Processors.

Now i aint a fan boy so its all about pure bang for buck here.

In opinion what of the two has more raw power?
According to the Rage3d review, that Superclocked version of the GTX570 would have more raw power.
