I would, that's what I'm currently running right now and it doesn't seem to have any noticable issues while gaming at 6000 x 1080. I'd highly recommend them over the more costly and about same performance 580s.

The GTX 580 is the fastest single gpu card. But it offers little more performance than the 6970 and is $100+ dollars more. NVIDIA vs Radeon? Radeon wins every time.

That and the way SLI and Xfire scale there have been quite a few games where AMD comes out on top. Not to mention the price difference for 2 cards as well.

I am essentially upgrading for Skyrim/BF3. I wish the 7000 series cards arrived before Skyrim....

IT all depends on if you can hold off for now or not. For me I needed the switch as my 560 Tis were struggling with Dragon Age II on High settings due to their video ram, had it not been an issue (with a few other games) i'd of waited for the next gen to come out.
