Need Advice on HD 6850 vs. GTX 560

hi everyone
i am gonna buy a new vga card tomorrow and forgive me i have asked so much about the matter but i don't want to make a choice that i regret after that
iam now confused between the gigabyte GTX 560 SOC (the regular 560 not the TI version) and the gigabyte HD 6850 OC
my budget allow me to get either one but the problem is that my PSU is antec earthwatts 500 watt when i used the power supply calculator i found that the minimum for all my system is 408 watt and the recommended is 450 watt but i know that these measures are theoretical so i want your your advice about that matter
i want to have physx but i don't want to buy a new power supply i could leave the physx in return i save the power supply money cause i can't afford it
so please help me choose

my rig
processor: core 2 quad q9550
mobo: gigabyte ep43-ds3l
ram: 2 sticks *2 GB ocz
HDD: 1 black tera, 1 blue 320 GB
1 DVD
thats all i think if you want any more data about my system please tell me :)
thanks in advance :)

  1. 560 is better than 6850. 6850 consume less power than 560 http://www.hwcompare.com/11006/geforce-gtx-560-vs-radeon-hd-6850/

    u could even push a 6870 in that price range aswell which would be another choice. If you are only choosing between them 2 cards the gtx 560 is an easy winner

    but if you compare it to the 6870;

    its 1 watt more and also a cheaper card than the gtx 560 although its all down to your choice
  3. but i want to know if the PSU is enough for the 560 or i need to buy another power supply ?
    i can't buy another power supply with my current budget so if this is enough i will buy the 560 but if it not i will buy the 6850
    please help?
