I'm not into MOBOS much, I did a quick check on Newegg and didn't see anything, haha I spoke to soon.
They are as pricey but the 5970 is supposedly better then the 295, and if it's the same price, it's a no-brainer.

roughly speaking, the 5970 is about 1.5x's better then a 295

Right, but I think the LGA1156 will do him better considering the LGA1366 was designed for servers and clusters.

Good Lord....look at those prices. Someone suggested Newegg.com. That is good. You can do this yourself for much less. Much, much less.......and then you can add some perks.....
