You should keep the 5870 and 5970 in there...the 6870 is only a equivalent to a 5850....mid-range.

HD 5850 < HD 6870 < HD 5870 but really with current prices AMD/ATI just dun care about dropping the obviously overpriced HD 5.8k cards ...things would have been very different if they did revise pricing scheme!

True, but your title of the rig is "Top Dog" and you have a mid range GPU on the list......the current "Top Dog" is still the 5970.....and if you want to get even more specific the ASUS ARES.....little misleading IMO....if you are going to recommend something at least make the title accurate.

Just saying....

Well i did state it as a 'suggested config' With Cayman Pro/XT incoming attractions as well - HD 6870CF ($480) made more sense to me *now* but yes would be refreshed soon hehe
