Hello,

I need to decide on a GPU to buy. Either a GTX 560ti or a ATI 6950 , I'll be playing BF3 and most the the good games out coming out This year and text year.

I have about £200 to spend on a GPU. Here are my Specs , (Going to buy the parts this week.)

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor (£164.98 @ Dabs)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master RR-B10-212P-G1 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£135.22 @ Scan.co.uk)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£41.93 @ Ebuyer)
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£44.03 @ Scan.co.uk)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Video Card (£179.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 ATX Full Tower Case (£99.58 @ Scan.co.uk)
Power Supply: Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£64.99 @ Dabs)
Optical Drive: Sony DDU1681S-0B DVD/CD Drive (£11.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
Total: £742.69

Should I get a 6950 instead? The Bench marks seem to favour the 6950?

id say yes, the 6950 is better, its extra ram will help with high resolution titles in the future and it is slightly more powerful

The extra ram is only with the 2G version and that's more than 200 bucks.

560ti seems cheaper at the minute, just check reviews for which card you're thinking of buying. There's not too much of a difference
