I have been thinking of getting a new card, and I have read some reviews of the GeForce GTX 580 and the reviewers have said it's a very good card. But with the 6970's release coming I don't know what to get should I wait for the 6970 or go out and get the 580.

More about : 580 6970

Wait
Only mention from AMD was this month, no dates, so 3 weeks at the most
We may learn sooner than that as well

I want to get a 6900 series card too but I'm building my PC at the end of November and I'm not sure what I want to do if the rumors of delays are true due to production volume...

Here's the play: Wait until November 22nd, the purported release date of the AMD 6900 series. At that time, if there is no additional information, consider the GTX580. I expect prices will have stabilized around $500 by then, (maybe with Christmas specials as well?). All the same, though, if you play any games that feature PhysX, then the choice will obvioulsly be the GTX580, regardless.

Just wait for the 6970 to come out driving down the price of the GTX 580. Unless you can't wait. The GTX 580 is a sick card man!
