The 570s are faster, but not enough so they're going back in. Going to sell the 570 I bought for $350, it's on the FS board now.
The hitching I encountered on some games and settings on the 570s and the research I've done into the subject since lead me to think 1.5GB is needed for 98% of gaming at 57X10, and 2GB+ is nice to have in isolated instances. If I ever buy a couple more 3007s, I'll only settle for 3GB cards.
I will say this as well- the 5870 "EyeFinity Editions" suffer from some false advertising. A single 5870 has nowhere near the stones to run three monitor, much less six. I wonder how many people bought one of them only to buy another? OTOH, as the 560s trump a 5970 by a much closer margin, that is a decent Eyefinity rig for three cards.
If I could get my young son off the Dead Rising 2 I could probably tell you more, but it appears he's having a lot of fun bashing zombies.
