Build almost complete, need help on Graphics Card.

Hey guys,

As the title states...my rig (included below) is at long last complete save for one component. I'm looking for the best "bang for my buck" card out right now. I have up to around $270 to spend and I'm planning on buying it in the next 2 days. I will be gaming on a 24" 1920x1080p monitor. The games I will be playing in the upcoming months are WoW, SWTOR and Diablo III.

As I said I'm looking for the best value for my money right now, any and all insight concerning specific models is appreciated.

Thanks!

  1. Either a GTX 560 Ti or a HD 6950 should be fine.

    You can add a second card in SLI or Crossfire in the future to give you better performance.

    Any insight on a specific model from each brand?
  3. I too suggest going with a GTX560ti.
    Supposidly Nvidia cards are to be favored in Blizzard games so that might be something to think about.

    Here's what I would go with...

    MSI Twin Frozr II $245=$225 after MIR + Free Shipping

  5. Have 2 of the 560ti gigabytes in my rig , Have to say I am very happy with them, the cooling, performance and factory oc is great and have no issues.

    MSI GTX560 Ti N569GTX-Ti OC D5 1Gb Twin Frozer 2
    EVGA GTX560 Ti DS Superclocked D5 1Gb
    Gigabyte GTX560 Ti UDV Over D5 1Gb

    MSI HD6950 Power Ed. OC D5 1Gb Twin Frozer 3
    Gigabyte HD6950 UDV Over D5 1Gb Windforce 3X.

    Personally, I would opt for the GTX560 Ti.

    From experience, NVIDIA offer better performance and software support.

    Just my 2c.
  7. The Twin Frozr offers the best cooling out of those but if the 6950 Twin Frozr III is the same price as the GTX560ti Twin Frozr II you should go for the Twin Frozr III hands down.
