I'm buying a new card. So I've been really into these GPU's and i've come to the decision between the GTX 560 ti w/ 448 cores and HD 6950 only that I would unlock it to 6970. The thing is I really can't dicide because i've been using Nvidia for all my life and I kindda can't trust AMD, But the GTX is 50-70$ more and I don't like that because I'm on a Budget :) . So can you please tell me if the HD 6950 worth it. I'm a gamer and I play the newest games: Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, GTA 4 and of course all the upcoming games :)  haha

So basicly, is GTX 560 TI w/ 448 cores worth those 50-70$ more?

Oh and by the way, later i'm planing for to do SLI or Crossfire with the same card, so a really need a very good advice on which card :)

Buy 560Ti not 448 core. For 40$ buy 570 EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... with rebates is 310$. A 560Ti 448 core is 290$. And a 560Ti EVGA 01G-P3-1561-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is 200$ after rebates. For 4-6fps+ don't worth the money unless you buy 570.Buy an 560Ti and overclock a little and you will have great performance with less money.

The 2gb 6950 with an unlock is as fast if not a bit faster than the 448 core. Go head and.get it then xfire another later.
