    Theres more holes in this statement than a colander.

    Not had one issue in 7mths with any driver since i've had a 5870.

    My 4 previous cards were all Nvidia, they have just as many probs with drivers.... it would be foolish to say they didn't. Hell I even remember one driver about a yr ago that nearly fried peoples cards as it messed with the fan profiles.

    Just because I small minority of people on this forum are very vocal about there CFX problems doesn't mean majority have problems.
    Most of 'us' (judging by how many cards Ati have sold i last yr or so) are very very happy with our cards and drivers.

    ATI SUCKS and im so smart to say that hd6970 will not only be worse than nvidia gtx480 they will be worse than 8800gtx because ati has drivers problems, horrible image quality, temperature problems, crossfire problems, they have ugly design, ugly and noisy fans, they support only dx7 and they are VERY expensive!

    NVIDIA RULES ALL THE WAY DAWG, and ITS A PURE FACT!!!!

    wow, you sound like a terrible fanboy.

    ati had the first dx11 card on the market.

    ive never had issues with crossfire. although from reading on here, people have the same issues with sli that they have with crossfire. both sides have occasional driver issues.

    the ati 5970 dual gpu card ran cooler than the nvidia gtx480 single gpu card.

    designs are fairly similar for the coolers.

    fans were noisier on the gtx480.

    ati radeons cost less than the nvidia geforce cards.

    and look at the image quality reviews. image quality is the same on both sides of the fence.

    I dont get this tbh Darren,

    At the time you got your 5870 (which was an oc'd/custom cooled expensive one) the GTX 480 was coming out at well over £400.
    Stock 5870's at this time were circa £300

    ^ they were retailing for over £300 mate, I wouldn't say the 5800 series offer great value compared to the 580, the 6870 does tho

    hence the Circa.

    But the comparison he made was so flawed, prices of a card in March to one released in Nov.
    Things change in so may ways.

    At that time £350 was a little steep of a 5870, but they were retailing at about £315-325 if I remember.

    Look at the 5870 price now £234..... id say thats great value regardless of what you compare it against.
