    I think you mean the 560* ti

    I think the 6870 is better then the 550ti.
  3. GTX560Ti > HD6870 > 550Ti

    GL.
  4. That's true the HD 6870 is about 5% faster than GTX 550ti.
    @OP, what's your gaming resolution ?
  5. What model motherboard is it going into?
  6. sorry guys its gtx 560ti(inno 3d) vs asus oc 6870 my motherboard is a gigabyte z68ap 8gig ram i5 2500k.

  8. here is the perfomance of the cards

    ati 6950>gt 560ti>ati 6870>gtx 460>ati 6850>ati 6790>gtx 550ti

    go for 550ti is good option you want physx but if you want perfomance in price like gtx 550ti then go for ati 6790 if u can spend more then dont go for 6850 go for gtx 460

    but again all on your budget 6850 is better then 6790 and gtx 550ti
  9. Surely the 6870 would trounce the 550ti in terms of performance? Even a 460 is faster than a 550ti... Its just Nvidia's strange naming schemes!

    1920 by 1080
  11. If you will be gaming @ 1080P, better get a GTX 560Ti or HD 6950
  12. you are definately better off getting a 560ti than a 550ti

    its between the 560ti or the hd 6870 whats your thoughts
  14. 6870 is the one for you.
  15. GTX 560Ti is xzfaster than HD 6870 and comparable with HD 6950
  16. GA-Z68AP-D3 is only capable of Crossfire support if you choose to use two graphics cards down the road. It is not SLI ready. Not everyone will take advantage of Crossfire or SLI, but it certainly gives a slight edge to the Radeon cards for your particular motherboard should you choose to double up on GPUs.
  17. thanks everybody i got the 560ti gtx
