Recently my old graphics card died out on me, it was overheating, so I disassembled it but that appearently destroyed it completely. I've been looking at these 3 cards, though i'm willingly to pay more if it's worth it. My budget is approximately 380-400$. I'm hoping to play most games maxed out on a 1680x1050 res.
Thats nice, so my final question would be whether I should buy the HD69501gb/2gb or a GTX560 TI, I know you suggested the 6970, but I see the price between them is not very significant, and I'd like it more futureproof.
The other guy mentioned that the 6950 1gb was the way to go, while that is likely true, does anyone think it would be a good idea to buy the 2gb and then overclock/unlock it along the way?
In comparison to the MSI, the gigabyte GTX560 is on par with regards to core clock (950), though it is 16$ more. The Asus one (900mhz core clock) is the cheapest of the bunch, and thats 38$ cheaper than the gigabyte.
