PowerColor HD6950 2gb ddr5 256bit VS. Inno3d GTX650Ti 1gb ddr5 128bit

Which should I get? I'm gonna use the card for mainly next gen gaming. I don't need 60 FPS, something like 30-40 on Ultra Settings is fine for me. No offense, but please don't suggest other cards since these 2 are the only ones on my budget. The price difference here in my place between the 2 cards is like $15 with the HD6950 being the more expensive one.

Also, with either of those 2 Cards work well with this PSU?

  1. The PowerColor HD 6950 is much better then the Inno3d GTX 650Ti. I won't really say is there is quite a big difference. I would go for the 6950 all the way, But if you can get brands like Asus, Gigabyte, Sapphire or MSI then they would be much better as they are have a much better reputation and cooling wise, a lot better. The GTX 650 Ti will actually struggle a lot on Ultra in some games like Crysis 3 as an example, the 6950 will outperform the Nvidia card by a long shot. The HD 6950 will not disappoint and is defiantly worth it over a GTX 650 Ti. The 6950 as you listed does have double the memory bus and total Vram which is good and the overall speed of the 6950 is much better. The 6950 at stock runs at 160GB/s and the GTX 650 Ti runs at 86.4GB/s, quite a significant difference . Then 6950 has twice the amount of Render Output Units, More unifying shaders and more Texture mapping units.
  2. and your PSU has plenty of watts to power that card

    But I think the HD7950 requires two 6Pin Connectors but the PSU only has 1 6Pin Connector. If that is true, can I just use a Mloex Adapter and if i do, is it safe?
  4. according to the Thermaltake Website, it says it has 2 6-pin connectors you should be fine
