Default GTX570 HD7870

Just found a decent price on a GTX570. Has anyone seen any head to head figures against the HD7870?

the 7870 sits between the 570 and 580 ( at stock clocks and above the 580 overclocked ) and is selling for about 360 as of about an hour ago on amazon not that i care or any thing and it uses less power while doing it

Go with the 7870, newer architecture, quieter, slightly faster, uses less power, quieter...

Yep, get the 7870 especially as lately games have developed a significant hunger for VRAM.
