ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This card is a temporary solution to postpone buying a new rig. I simply want to be able to play
SWTOR properly for the coming months/year. I simply don't have the budget for a new rig atm. Please let me know if it is not worth buying a new graphics card or if buying one will have minimal gain with my other hardware.
The GTX 560 ti is your best bet if you like the cuda. Now the HD 6950 is about the same as the 560 is but it doesn't have cuda. I prefer Nvidia cards better and I can tell you not to get the GTX 550ti because they are to much money and not enough bang. I have two of them and not happy with them. I hope this helps a little?
