Get the answer esrever a c 92 U Graphics card December 28, 2011 5:04:45 AM the 560 should be at least 10% more powerful than the 6850, its priced to compete with the 6870 and I think the 6870 is slightly better. Score 0 Best solution spentshells a b U Graphics card December 28, 2011 5:08:22 AM The 6870 is not better than the 560 at all. The 560 will push by the 6870 quite easily when you overclock it. To save 20 dollars the 6870 is a great move.
