sorry but for 2009 nvidia was king for most of the year and the same in 2008.

I'm not talking about the past 10 or 15 years, back then amd didn't even own ati.

in 2009/2010, I could careless who was on top in 2005 or whenever, those card's performance is a joke to current games, specially in dx10.

they don't have payment options, you can use your own credit card and etc, but DS doesn't offer any payment options.

@DST

I will be switching the I7 to the Phenom 965........good or bad idea? The AMD chipset seems to be cheaper, but seems to perform just as well as the I7's.

You will probably be bottle necked by the CPU if you get a 5970.  I would highly suggest an Intel based system if you're looking for long lasting system.

I know you can't always go by reviews, but these benchmarks seem to show an 965 OCed to 3.8 being mostly beaten by a stock 920 at 2.66. 

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/phenom-x4-965,2389.html

I'd imagine an OCed 920 would win hands down.

*BUMP

Anyways, after a very long time of thinking about it, and research.......I decided not to go with the 5970.

I decided to wait for Fermi, and to give Nvidia a shot, maybe also wait for the 6 core CPU's, I think this will be my final decision.
