5970 is good but old.

But they both are based on 40nm tech. No matter if 5970 is old.

ATI/AMD has always driver support for their previous card. If he get warranty from sub-vendor then it dosnt matter. Warranty from sub-vendor is the fact.

Support != warranty. It's drivers that matter. We all know that old HD 4000 cards stopped getting proper driver support - for example, 12.4 drivers work only for new cards for diablo 3!

and power supply because the HD 5970 requires some horsepower 180-watts on idle and (400-460)-watts during some games and benches.
GTX 560Ti is 33% less in power requirements.
