I plan to game at 1920x1080 with everything maxed out.My budget is limited to $250.Logic and research tells me that a 6950 is the best bang for the buck .Well my friends have been telling me to wait till Kepler comes out,and see what NV offers.I wanted to ask you guys what you thought
it would be more better to wait for kepler but the price when the card release is to a high end that no one can buy on that time i m saying this because in toms hardware news i have heard that hd 7970 will be around $400 and when it came out its price was about near $500 for better cards.
Kepler? You will wait longer for them because you don't know whether: It's good or not, It's expensive or not, It's going to be released shortly or later. In my opinion you should buy 6950 now and stay with it until you crossfire it. You may stay on it until Maxwell or Sea Island since you only play in 1080p. Here some good 6950:
Well i was recommended the gtx 550ti and the 560ti 448 by some.It has been so confusing for me.some say used gtx 570 is the best deal others hint at a 5870 being the best choice.i really am indescisive
for all of that recommendation an gtx 560ti 448 cores will be most better option because its has the performance near the gtx 570 and after overclocking it performs as a gtx 570 so save up some money and go for gtx 560ti 448 core it will be better option.
But, you also said about a GTX 570, it's the most expensive ones and probably the best mentioned. But the prices are well over $300, so you rather not get them. You can overclock the 560 ti 448 to some decent clocks and then you can get and you should be able to outperform a GTX 570.
But if you can't pay more than 6950 ($250), You'd throw this 560 ti 448 idea to the bin...
