Which opens the door to cheaper crossfire.

I've been absolutely thrilled with the performance of my 5870 and my two 5770s in cross.
The Nvidia 580 is $499 while the 6970 is $340-ish (Visiontek) right now. That's a BIG gap in price. The 580's competitor is/was the 5970 Black Edition which was a 2xCPU card but I think the 580 still beat it out but only slightly.
