  1. If you can afford the 6950 then go for it.

    I run an overclocked 6870 (1000/1200), and while I can run 95% of my games at 1080p flawlessly, there are still a few games that could use a little extra power to remain smooth while maxed out.

    My rig has the 6870 and 2500K 4.5 Ghz. When playing Battlefield 3 on outdoor maps like Caspian Border, I generally get 40-70 fps on High settings with 2XAA.
  2. For sure 6950 , watch a comparison between these cards : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/290?vs=293

  3. Thanks buddy for your valuable opinion.It helps me a lot.Can you do me one more favour by telling me that is Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 1GB is also better than GEforce GTX 560 ti.Another thing is that is the memory type of Sapphire HD Radeon 6950 is DDR5 V6?and if that then what is the advantage of it?
