  3. For $300 the GTX570 has a great performance to cost ratio.It's more powerful than the 6950 and is more on par with the 6970.Of course for $300 you would have to go with a reference model,if you don't mind.The 6950 Inzone linked has a very good aftermarket cooler and would be the better choice if cool temps is what you would prefer.

    This is the GTX570 i'm referring to.

  4. 570 for sure! beats the 6950 and the 6970 ( in some benchmarks/games ). You can pick up 570 for around 310 - 340.
  5. I can't understand why you would pay $300 for a 6950 when you can get the 1G version for $210.As well as paying $300 for the 6950 when you can get the GTX570 for that price.The reference GTX570 I linked is $290 after MIR.
