Default What NIVIDIA card is comparable to this AMD card?

I'm trying to get a idea of what I would need to spend on a NIVIDA card that would be comparable to this card:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100311-2SR Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Thank you

Depending on the game, a 560 ti or 570.

Can you emphasize on the "game" part. Where would that matter?

Different games are optimized for nvidias or amds. Some get huge boosts, and some dont.

The 570 is the real competitor, but the 560ti is slightly lower.

Ok. The 570 doesn't look like it cost any more then the AMD card either. I always thought Nividia was higher priced. This one is only about $20 more.

Nvidia partners make a wide varitey of cards with different overclocks and so the prices are all over the place.
