    The two biggest performance improvements you can make on a PC these days are using a better Video Card, and installing a SSD drive for your OS to reside on. Hands down.
    Yeah, all new components will be fast, really fast, but it not as if your Q9550 is some kind of dog. It's not.

    Good choice! You should have low temps and excellent performance, you can never go wrong with ASUS products!

    Very nice!
    Did you ever use it as an air cooled card so you can compare it's performance?

    unfortunately not as my southbridge block was in a way since this card takes 3 slots when air cooled

    This is not true. The 6970 trades blows equally with the 570.

    It's safe to say that either one of them makes for a fine card to have. The ~only~ thing that the NVIDIA cards have that's extra would be CUDA and PhisX support. Then again, the Radeon cards are said to ~scale~ better in Crossfire than the NVIDIA cards do in SLI.

    this went the wrong direction by me typing 6970 when i meant 6950 like the title of the thread says. there is no question that the 570 is superior to the 6950

    Just saw this thread, and was going to say that as a 6950 user who has benched a 570, I would absolutely go with a 570 or the 560Ti 448 core.

    Great choice with the ASUS, I find their boards to have the best build around.
