560TI SO vs. 6950 OC


i'm upgrading my system with a new motherboard, processor and RAM and a looking to buy a new videocard as well. I have a lot of trouble choosing which one to buy and would like you're input. Right now I'm stuck between the Gigabyte GV-N560SO-1GI http://www.gigabyte.co.nl/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3729#ov] and the Gigabyte GV-R695OC-1GD http://www.gigabyte.co.nl/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3693#ov] The cost about the same 242,50 euro's for the 560TI vs. 228,65 euro's for the 6950. If there are better cards out there in the same pricing range i would like to know it also :kaola:

The new system specs:

Intel Core I5 2500K
MSI P67A-C45 (b3)
OCS 700W ModXStream-Pro
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 2,5" 120 GB
Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB

  1. Check benchmarks of the games you want to play. The HD6950 is a little stronger in general, but there are some games (e.g. Civilization V) where the GTX560Ti blows it out.
  2. These are some benchmarks of the gtx 560 soc comparing it to the 6950 in these benchmarks the gtx 560 soc looks like a better card overall, even out performing the gtx 570 AND the 6970 in a few games.http://www.legionhardware.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_560_ti_soc,1.html
