7970 is the performance king at the moment.

Hmmm, not so easy. Looking at the benchmarks, from a few reviews such as:

guru3d article and
this one which includes the 7970 in its benches

the 560Ti 2Win seems to be a decent performer, almost up where the 6990 is. Definately seems faster than the 7970.

You could look at it two ways:

Option 1: Performance being close enough, pick the one which is cheaper.

Option 2: Single gpus are always better than SLI`d gpus (which this card is). Some programs or games don`t support SLI as well as they should, and the scaling does not equal double the power consumption. In that case, go with the 7970 (which has unbeatable power consumption for the performance, btw).

Of the 2 I would go for the 7970.
