Default ENGTX 570 or radeon 6950 unlocked to 6970?

there are 2 people on craigslist selling there graphics cards. one person has a radeon 6950 unlocked to 6970 for $195. another has an ASUS ENGTX 570 for $180. i honestly don't care about the price difference, i'm just curious as to which card is better?

In most tests the 570 is better or they are relatively even. I would go with the 570 due to Nvidia having better drivers.

I agree, I have a 560ti and wish I had a 570, that a very decent price too.

Make sure you have enough room for the 570 though because with that awesome cooler/fan setup on the ASUS it takes up 3 slots worth of space.
