Ok, but this 2GB has almost the same price that the 1GB Asus or other major manufacturers(and the MSI N560GTX Ti Hawk)

Here is a review of the MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk vs a stock clocked 6950 -

The HD 6950 dominated in two of our games and tied the N560GTX-Ti Hawk in two other games.


Quote:
The HD 6950 was faster for the most part and the N560GTX-Ti Hawk costs $20 to $50 more.


With the HIS having even higher clock speeds than the stock 6950 here, it seems like a no-brainer to me which card is preferable.

Also, check the power draw on each card -



You'll pay even more for the Hawk in the long run. Almost 25% more is frankly an awful lot considering it's a slower card.

Good choice. You'll be laughing when a lot of the oncoming new games want a lot of VRam.
