More about 6870
  1. they are all the same card and will perform pretty much the same. The 2 with OC will be slightly faster but you can manually OC all three.

    the 6870 will perform just as well for cheaper.
  2. I agree with esrever, the 6870 is cheaper and performs literally the same. Here is one for $50 less.

    What kind of computer are you using? You can't get any of these cards if you have a stock Dell or HP or something.
  3. Restricting my search to just Newegg Canada, you could go with one of the various 6870s that are selling for $180 like : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948

    That would give you similar performance. But if you have an nvidia preference then those cards are not bad. There's a 560ti going for $220. But of those you are comparing I prefer the Asus over the other two, it already has a nice OC and might go higher without too much trouble: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121446
  4. whats better:

    EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 02G-P3-1559-KR Video Card
    vs
    XFX HD-687X-CNFC Radeon HD 6870 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

    website: newegg.ca/ what ever is the cheapest!

    canada!
  5. you'd have to go with the 6870, it's 2 tiers above the 550 ti on the hierarchy chart and generally competes with the faster gtx 560:

  6. the 6870 is 50% faster than the 550ti
  7. 6870 by a long shot. But you don't need the 2gb version for gaming at 1920x1080 or under. You say "cheaper" so the 6870 1gb would be better value.
  8. 6870 is much faster
