Question Looking for a review between 5870 crossfire vs 5970 variants

I searched this forum as well as the review area but could not find a head to head comparison between 5870 crossfire vs a single 5970; taking into account fps at higher resolutions with and without AA as well as noise output and temperature differences.

Anyone?

Thanks.

Smile Video Card comparisons

If I'm not mistaken, and lots of times I am, there is a review of 470s in SLI which shows what you're looking for. It shows a number of cards in crossfire and SLI as well as single card results. Check reviews in the video card section. It is the 1st one from the top.

Great reviews. Thanks a bunch. Still glad I went overboard with 2 of those monsters. Now I have to switch to core i7, but look forward to eventually getting 3 monitors in eyefinity. Nothing like going WAAYYY overboard.

Great, thanks. The 5970 is definitely not worth the price.
