  1. niether is as good as 3x 7970 crossfire.

    even 2x 7970 will probably be even with 3x 580s.
  2. They end up about the same

    Go with the cheapest one. But really if you have not purchased them the 600 series is about to come out and if that dissapoints the 7970 is quite a fast one. Its not as fast as I thought it would be but the king for now.
