I seem to remember hearing about Diamond a while back, but not am not sure about the quality of their products.
Any help would be appreciated!

Why don't you go for the GTX 570..?? Its cheaper and also faster compared to the HD 6970..
Mar 13, 2011, 7:26 PM
^no, 6970 is faster than 570 ---> 560<6950<570<6970<580
Mar 13, 2011, 7:27 PM
well maybe not faster, but the performance is much higher than 570...

Having personally seen a GTX 570 vs HD 6970, I believed the 570 to be a better performer.. It even comes out on top in this review -

the DirectCU II is an awesome cooler. i would get that 6970. 2GB of VRAM is useful if you want to use much AA/AF on higher resolutions (1080P and higher).

Thanks for the replies! I'll be going with the Asus for sure!
