I understand the gamer mind and its rice. Even if the 5970 is better than the 7970s the "cool kid gamer" is the one who has the 7970.... Trust me, just go to /g/ with 3x 7970s and you will have traps for life.
Which is what I was thinking.
Yet the supply of 5970s on ebay has gone down and price has gone up. I also expected to see some waterblock modded cards (which ironically are harder to sell so they end up being a better buy for buyer) but nope.
So frustrating I should have bought more in Dec.
Maybe i need to start badmouthing those "crappy" 5970s.
