The 560ti and 6950 both offer great perfomance for thier price, depending on games they are quite close in performance. The 560ti does overclock very well.
The 560ti 448 is an awesome card, its performance matches and sometimes beats a GTX 570..... in my opinion I'd go for the 560ti 448

I'd get 560 Ti/6950 1GB and OC it.

but gtx 569ti 448 costs higher than a amd 6950..i heard that 6950 is equal to gtx 570 i was about to buy it but in bf3 i heard that amd 6950 was not good they started stuttering during game so i decided to go to nvidia.. .ARE AMD DRIVERS a CRAP because i get news regularly that the games get stuck in the middle of game requiring restart..should i go to amd or nvidia

among the 3 cards, the 560 ti 448 cores is the most powerful, followed by 560 ti and 6950. in games 560 ti and 6950 1 gb trade blows. 560 ti 448 cores has a gpu die harvested from gtx 570 gpu. that's why 560 ti 448 cores can match or beat a gtx 570 when it is overclocked. the 560 ti 448 costs the most, followed by 6950 and 560 ti. at newegg.com both 560 ti and 6950 1 gb seem to be priced similarly with the cheapest 560 ti cheaper than the cheapest 6950 1 gb.
afaik, 2x 6950 stutter less than lower end cards. 3x 6950 stutter very little. but amd's driver support is inferior to nvidia's. for bf3 nvidia gtx 560 ti or 560 ti 448 cores would be better.

Hi vishalaestro! As far as performance, it should be this: 570>560 ti 448 > 6950 = 560 ti.

In some games AMD cards will significantly outperform the NVidia competitor and vice versa. But the above is a ranking of the average performance. Any of these cards is a great option, just make sure you shop around and take advantage of any deals going on.

The 69501GB is a very good value and is sometimes hard to beat at the price point, but keep an eye out for other deals.

The 6950 will perform better than the 560 ti, especially considering it can be unlocked witch sapphire makes extremely easy. Howerver the 560 ti is from nvidia so if being able to run PhysX (i have no idea if it will continue to get popular or still be uncommon in games) in games matter to you the performance compared to the to is still nearly the same. The 560ti 448 is a good choice as well but is probally outside of the budget as it is more expensive then the two other cards

i can buy a 6950 but the problem is that my room temp is very high like 30-32c thats the problem..and an another reason i go to nvidia is that many games are made for nvidia rather than amd like bf3, crysis, crysis 2..all ea games demand only nvidia card and the most important one PHYSX the makes me go around nvidia iam going to use only single monitor in my life and will never go to eyefinity setup ..is there any best reason why i should go for amd rather than nvidia..i will not overclock my system in future as my ambient temp is very high and i cannot use air conditioner for 5hrs while playing games..so i want everything best under stock settings..can really go to amd 6950 or stay with nvidia ..

one way could be to get a card with good cooling.. like asus direct cu ii or msi's twin frozr ii or iii or his iceq turbo. and have ample air supply in the case. if your ambient temp is very high and you don't have a.c., cfx/sli might not be a good idea. you gotta make sure that the card gets enough air to run cool. cards as powerful as 560 ti or 6950 can easily hit 90c. for instance, you can consult articles like this:

you could try searching for similar articles on nvidia cards.

Go look at nvidia 560 ti if you want. And be sure that it has a good cooler like twin frozer or direct CU. If you want 6950 you might get IceQ or Twin Frozer to make good cooler.

Seriously, choosing 560 ti or 6950 is based on personal preference. If you like PhysX, small cards, cooler cards and CUDA, choose Nvidia, If you like higher framerate, eyefinity, lower power consumption, go for AMD.

And I don't know why you said those games are made for Nvidia. Eventhough they are made for them AMD cards mostly have higher framerates.

That's pretty funny. Whats even funnier was that this was chosen as 'best answer' by the op.

Saying AMD cards have higher fps in "The Way it's Meant to be Played" games that nVidia had a hand in helping develope. DirectX 11 games that we've seen released this year have all in fact shown the opposite of your claim... games that use tessellation heavily. ATi had to put an option in their drivers to allow users to turn tessellation down, because of how slowly they render it. Do you not remember how much of a kick in the teeth Crysis 2 was to Ati?
