ok basically im trying to figure out which one is better?
The second thing is if the GTX 470 is better is it worth the extra $50 to pay for it.
I know that everyone likes Nvidia but i need a honest review to figure out which one is better and if the FPS in games does increase that much.
I only run on a 1440 by 900 display so im wondering if the GTX is that much better and worth it and if the FPS increase is tremendousness.
Are you planning on upgrading the monitor anytime soon? If not I really wouldn't go beyond a GTX 460 which can be OC'd to very close to GTX 560 power (not that yo will really need to at that res)
If trying to decide best bang for your buck the GTX 460 would be the winner due to not needing anymore power than that (and the fact it is a great budget card)
If it must be between the cards you stated, then 6870 simply because it is cheaper and still plenty of power for your res.
I play at 1920 x 1080 and my GTX 560 provides all the power I need for gaming
