I really want a 7970, but cant justify it + a full cover block right now for this reason.

I'm sure 60fps low on BF3 would be awesome, but to drop $500+ on it isn't in the cards right now.

I feel like 5870 is like 8800gtx in it's longevity.

Additional Comment:

So from what I can tell (one 7970)>(5870 xfire)?
