Need help deciding on my new video card Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: February 26, 2012 3:39 AM in Graphics & Displays Share user2345 February 26, 2012 3:17:27 AM I am currently looking at a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130683 or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150517&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=10&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo The 560 is about 100$ less on sale right now. If the performance of the 6970 is worth the extra 100$, I am willing to spend it. I have been waiting for the 7970s but life took some change out of my video card fund so I can't get the top of the line. I know keplars are coming out.. Should I wait for price drops (UGH!)? I should also mention I am upgrading from a 450 GTS.

GTX 560 Ti -448 would be my second choice. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (if you can no longer wait and wanting to buy now) you could do the GTX 560 Ti and add SSD to your rig.? (not knowing your system specs and cost of SSD with GPU is around $350ish..) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Wouldn't the 2gb 6970 be superior to the 570 1gb? http://www.enthusiastpc.net/articles/00010/ Is just one reference I was using.. I really have no personal preference about radeon vs nvidia, not enough games use physics and not enough monitors to care about exfinity, max 3 monitors for me. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
