Hello,

I posted on here a cope of days ago asking whether to get the i5 2500k or i7 2600k for gaming and most said go for the i5. Now I just need some advice on a video card. It's either between a 560 ti or a 6950 2gb. My friend told me the 6950 is comparable to the 570, but I didn't think that was true so I come here today to ask your opinion. Also Physx is cool but won't be too much of a major point to make me go for the nvidia card. I just need to know which one is honestly just more powerful.

6950 2gb is 6 percent more powerful. If you get the "right" one, you can unlock it to a 6970, which IS on par with the GTX 570.

Any one of these cards are a great choice. I often tell people to flip a coin or decide which color you like better (green or red). Honestly though, they perform exactly the same and I would opt for the GTX 560 Ti because I have been sporting nVIDIA products for years now and I like to support them. If you like AMD and want to support them then purchase the HD 6950.

No. The amount of ram isn't going to give you a performance difference at all unless you're using like a triple monitor setup, or sometimes in 2560x1600.

Which 560, which 6950 ? What resolution ? Single card or CF / SLI ?

The thing that differentiates the two is that the factory OC'd 560's with the better coolers are the same price....the factory OC'd 6950's are bit of a premium still. The other thing that has to be taken into account is the scaling, they don't scale the same. While it's relative toss up in single card configuration @ 1920 x 1200 ..... 484 versus 495 fps in Guru3D's game test suite.....in SLI the 560's have a 103 fps lead (862 to 759) over the twin 6950's .... two 900 MHz 560's even top two 6970's (825 fps) . In the table below, the 6950 Frozr gets 484 fps as a single card, 759 in CF and costs ya 54 cents per frame as a single card and 69 cents per frame in CF

$ 220.00 6950 (479/751) $ 0.46 - $ 0.59
$ 260.00 6950 Frozr OC (484/759) $ 0.54 - $ 0.69
$ 205.00 560 Ti (455/792) $ 0.45 - $ 0.52
$ 320.00 6970 (526/825) $ 0.61 - $ 0.78
$ 215.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $ 0.43 - $ 0.50
$ 340.00 570 (524/873) $ 0.65 - $ 0.78
$ 500.00 580 (616/953) $ 0.81 - $ 1.05
