But he's getting the GTX 570 for FREE.Why would he want to shell out 370 bucks for the HD 6970?
He's the one who brought up the 6970 option. He also cannot do his 3 monitor setup he wanted with a single 570. I also do not believe the 570 will be free. It's a trade in, and he'll be paying the difference. It's an EVGA step up program, he probably has to pay the difference. EVGA also makes 6970's, so he may be able to use the same program to go that route, although I don't know about this program, so it may require him to stay with Nvidia, maybe he can fill us in.
