Yes, the HD 5970 is about the same price. Which is going to make it tough for the GTX 480 -- no matter how much better it is than the HD 5870, it'll have to compete against the dual-gpu video card selling for the same price.

ATI is also rumored to working on a HD 5890 video card as well... in the end though, until some benchmarks can be run, it is tricky to say how all the chips are going to fall.

That's 2 GPUS , and 5870 is more than enought for a normal gamer for all todays games

Lets see, stable drivers(nvidia) or unstable drivers(ATI). Hmmmm this is a tough choice. Nvidia you install it and forget about it. ATI each driver release causes problems in one game but fixes problems in others. With nvidia you get what you pay for, which is quality, stability, and performance. This card will probably shred ATI's offerings, including the 5970. I've had extensive experience with both.

Sounds like a classic marketing pitch riiaku maybe talk about how you get free t-shirts too and that NVIDIA hasn't had silicon issues over the past few years recalling chips across multiple lines.

Both sides have their issues, it helps when people admit to them instead of playing up only the good. I still don't get the ATI driver thing though, I've run their cards on XP for years and 2008 without issue. :/ the biggest issue I tend to get is the HSF units can't take the long haul over the years.
