^^ So what exactly are you after? I don't think either arrangement would be the wrong choice.....
See, I'm not too sure anymore. I'm more of an nVIDIA fan, but I have to say that I canceled my 470 preorder (fermi heat) and got a HD5870, that served me well. Never experienced driver issues or anything...

Now that nVidia's thermals are kept in check again, I'm confident that a GTX570 setup would be fine. It's cheaper than 6970's too. I want lifetime, so EVGA would be my first choice...
