Re: 5970+5870 Tri-Fire vs. GTX 580 SLI?
When you talk about "king of the hill" there is normally only a small percentage in the difference between comparable cards.
A few FPS one way or the other does not make much difference.
Until some new games come out all of the older cards still handle them just fine.
SLI and Crossfire with the newest cards is more bragging rights than performance gains.
Unless you have a monitor that supports 2560x1600 there is not much point.
