hey guys im going to be buying a new video card in the next couple of days and i just looked at new egg and saw that these GTX 560 are around te same price of the 6870's. Im wondering if the GTX 560 are better then 6870s and if they last longer.
For the combined tests of 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 at 0x and 4x anti-aliasing the GTX 560 non-Ti is 1% faster than the 6870, 17% faster than the 460, and 12% slower than the 560 Ti. The most relevant test is the 1920x1080 at 4x.
The conclusion also includes information not in the test though it's under the assumption it costs $200 (it did at the time).
If the HD 6870 is cheaper then get that, the graph shows the GTX 560 has nearly no gain (1%) over the HD 6870 and uses a lot more power.
well i personally like the gtx 560 band as far as i know it runs cooler and quieter than the 6870 plus i have a sli mobo so i could sli in the future if i need to. My power supply is a 600w that runs at 40amps so i dont think that it really matter that it uses alittle bit more power than the 6870
