Default Re: GTX570 or Ati 6950 ?

A GTX570 totally destroys a 6950 at gaming:

6950 only wins one of fourteen games at 19 X10 8(4)X16X, pretty much gets slaughtered. The 6970 fares better winning 7/14, but the margins it wins those games by are pretty low comparatively.
intel 990X + 2 X EVGA 3GB GTX580 + 3 X Acer GD235Hz

Rig 2:
intel 2500K + NVIDIA GTX590 + Dell 3007 WFPHC
