So yeah, with more performance on tap, and a non poor dick broke feature set, I did recommend 580s over 6970s. (and similarly don't think 7970s performance margin makes them a better buy as they have the same feature set with some pretty meaningless additions like "adjustable tesselation".
What's fake 3d???
