Mostly being the same myself Mindweaver, once having a 3870 & 4870. I just keep finding myself coming back to nVidia....

I think it's just the driver interface I am particular about.

Yea, I'm enjoying my GTX570 at the moment. I was hoping to get a GTX670 after the first of the year, but looking at the prices a HD7970 are around the same price and a HD7970 overclocked pasted 1ghz is hard to beat. I'd crown it the best card at the moment for the money @ $379.99 on the egg with a $20 MIR. But who knows after the first of the year the tides may change and the prices being better for Nvidia. I'd still like to pick up the other flag ship from the other company. :rockout:
