Although I haven't used an nVidia card in years, I can say I'm very happy with my Radeon cards over the years.
Driver issues are inherent on both sides and I've never had any major problems with the games I play.

I can say my shader unlocked and highly overclocked 6950 can run any game I've thrown at it at the highest settings at 1920x1200 without a hitch.

what about Sapphire 6970 flex BF3 Edition? I am thinking to buy it for myself also. It is a little more expensive but i believe it is worth the money.

What, maybe ATI has there whole price/performance, but they're definitely not in the category performance=ATI. Nvidia's gpus most of the time beat ati. a GTX 570 is on par if not better than a hd 6970 for about the same price.

Quality/Performance=Nvidia
Price/Performance=ATI

I'm in no hurry to upgrade yet and can wait till the 7 series come out and see. I'm sure going from a 5 series to 7 series should be good.

tks all.
