  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    If you're planing to play games(on good settings),then definitely go with this 6870
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131378
    It's the best card you can get;otherwise,consider GTX 550
  2. go for gtx570 or hd6950, with 6950, you may unlock to 6970. best value :ange:
  3. wow, that's a nice deal for HD6870, Maz, but considering its brand, I think he should get a better one from ASUS or XFX or Sapphire...

    Well, it's over budget (+$5 more), but definitely worth for longer term, it's up to you... :)

    As Vind said however.

    Be careful with the 6950's as you will struggle to find an early model which could be unlocked. Most of the new revision models of all 6950's will no longer unlock once flashed.

    However i would go with a 6950, currently bought the HIS iceq turbo 6970 which is great.

    Well,PowerColor may not be as good as ASUS/XFX but it's still a decent brand IMO.
    But I agree,for $5 more,the Sapphire one is worth it
    BTW,good to see you back in the forums :)
  6. im not considering to over clock the card and little concerned abt noise lvl
  7. Like I said,6870 is the best card in your price range,but if that's expensive and you aren't planing to play games(much),then consider cheaper options like GTX 550(which is also quieter )
  8. alright leave it to me i will recommend you a gtx 570 or 560ti
  9. Guys the OP mentioned he isn't a hard core gamer and also isn't planing to OC either; furthermore,his budget is 150-175 Canadian $ (So GTX 570 is out of his price range)
  10. 6870 is abt 200 $with taxes in canada.i will check prices for gtx 570 or 560ti .
    my friend have 6870 and he is very satisfied but he is hardcore gamer too.
  11. whta difference between mini hdmi or HDMI?

    Did you check the link I posted ? The 6870 I linked costs $175
  13. A Zotac O/C GTX560 @860Mhz after rebate 169$:
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500211
  14. Yeah the 6870 is the best option IMO
  15. Well 6870 could be best option if Zotac wasnt offer a GTX 560 O/C, only 169$. At 860Mhz is like MSI Twin Frozr O/C http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127593 (which is 10Mhz more). You can see here in a massive article from Tom's http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-radeon-graphics,2977-10.html that a factory O/C GTX560 at 870Mhz can beat any 6870 @ stock speeds and almost all 6870 factory O/C speeds (apart from HIS IceQX version (enthusiast settings)).
