Hd 6870 vs gtx 560

More about 6870
  1. someone plz? The xfx is the dual fan non black edition, and the pny is non ti and its like 30 dlls cheaper also OC is important
  2. why not the HD 6950 or GTX 560ti ? both have a better performance
  3. Close call, the performance is about the same. The 560 overclocks better but even then it is about the same as a oc'd 6870. 560 has PhysX if you like that. Amd has better colors i think, nvidea does better with bling bling like metal shine ( can't come up with the right word fot that ) on cannons.
    So if i were you and if your sure your system can handle these cards i would save just that 40 or 50 dollars more and get the 560 TI.
  4. Which is your current set up. Are you sure it can handle either of this cards (PSU, CPU, mobo)
  5. my pc specs are:

    e7400 OC @3.5Ghz
    Hyper 212 extreme
    HAF 912 Case
    4 Gb Ram DDR2
    psu: CoolerMaster Silent Pro 700W
    Windows Vista x64 Home
    Samsung Full HD Screen 1920x1080p (game res.)
  6. oh and 1 slot PCI-ex 16x 2.0
  7. PSU is so fine and so great, but there's a one little problem... you might be bottlenecked by the CPU if you play at 1080P, i guess you should buy a second hand intel C2Q and you should be fine
  8. ive read that at higher res the less bottleneck so... i dont know why r u saying that 1080p its ok... and have seen many 6850, 6870 with my cpu.... maybe it wont be bottlenecking that much... ur thread is about a gtx 560 ti... im talking about gtx 560 non ti... much less powered...

    the non ti 560 is a great card but not at $200, i got mine at 180 and just overclocked it....I suggest checking out newegg and getting the same twin frozr ii i got for $180 after MIR (MSI was quick and good on it)...currently have it overclocked to the following:

    970 core
    1940 shader
    2150 mem

    People say its the same card as the 460 are incorrect by a mile and a half...

    I will post link to bechmark images so you can see how it performs, just give me an hour or so...also, take a look here

    Also, I have vids up of Bad Company 2 maxed and Crysis 2 maxed with Blackfire mod, performance is also there in video notes...

    like i said, give me an hour or so and ill let you know on benchmarks such as unigine, metro, and 3dmark11...

    my specs are
    AMD Phenom X4 3.0 Deneb (stock)
    4Gigs of Ram DDR2 @800
    MSI Twin Frozr ii 560 GTX non ti

    Dunno bud...got it about a year and a half ago, almost 2 i believe...

    Honestly im sure having my CPU and Ram in stock is holding me back, but I currently have stock heatsink on CPU...gonna overclock it once I get some better cooling for it...

    As it is, the card performs like I expected...
  13. thank u and great reply! Itll be very useful to pick my next card.!

    you are welcome...like i said, if you can get it around the price i did, its a great buy...if you can only find it in your area for over 200, check to see how much more the ti is. If its not much, go for the ti otherwise the non ti is a great card
