sky (editor/ kinda head reviewer) just said yesterday to wait a few days since the 78xx series is to be released and we'll be pleasantly surprised about them and even if you dont want them you can get the 68xx series even cheaper. but out of your choices either the 6870 crossfire the 570 or a 6970 if you can find one for sale still but i vote wait or to get a 6970
Amd....definitely a blond female.....not much on the cpu side, but always strutting about showing off her gpus
