Radeon HD 6950 "Windforce OC"

Hi!

I am buying a new computer for around 850 $

Here's my config.

Gigabyte GA-PA65-UD3-B3 - Intel H61/DDR3/1155/ATX
96.00 €

Intel Core i3 2100T (2,50Ghz, 3MB) BOX
118.80 €

Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB 32MB
54.00 €

SATA ASUS DRW-24B3ST
26.40 €

.Maxcube Vortex 3620 Black 650W Silent
84.00 €

Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600Mhz cl9 - 1.50V
49.20 €

PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 1GB
142.80 €

I am wondering, (I happen to have the extra money) If the HD 6950 is worth spending another 80 bucks on? :??:

Thanks

  1. Also, I don't hate nVidia at all, so if you think the 560 GTX is better, it's not out of the question
  2. Some 560Ti cards are competitive with the 6950 at good/better price points. Next best deal is GTX570, $290 with rebates...not sure where that leaves you in Euros these days
  3. Really, video card choice can depend on your monitor's resolution. The higher its resolution, the more powerful card you'll probably want to get.
  4. sorry for forgetting, im playing on a 1920x1080 res. on a HD 1080p Screen. I always forget to tell that -.-
  5. also, witch is better : the Radeon HD 6950 Windforce oc or the GeForce 560Ti Windforce oc? the price tag matches to a cent :D
  6. by all means get this CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078

    the one you selected is a low power eco model and quite a bit slower and about as expensive.

    So i've heard, ive asked a couple more ppl on the forum :D

    However, the Phenom II X4 955 Black edition is also very good. witch would you put your money on?
  8. I would definitely say that the 6950 is worth the extra 80 bucks, but honestly, if you have the extra money, go with the i5 2500(K) processor.

    Keep in mind that if you look into that AMD Phenom II you are going to have to reprice your Mobo as well.

    honestly, if i had to choose i would save up for a 2500k, Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 mobo and Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU cooler and OC that 2500k to about 4.6hz. also spend the extra and get the 6950.

    this is my best bang for buck build that i recommend to everyone^^ :)

    if you dont want to spend that much money then just get the i3 2100 system. heres the difference between x4 955 and i3 2100 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/289?vs=88

    and here is the difference between the i3 2100 and 2500k http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/289?vs=288

    also dont forget how easy the 2500k is to overclock :)
