Hey! I have a choice between two GPU's and just wanted to know what other people thought of them. Going to be using my PC to play Rift, maybe some WoW and other games like Skyrim. I would like to be able to play them on high or even ultra settings. Out of these two cards which one is best?
I am running an Core i5-2500k, 16GB RAM, 550w PSU (yes I know this needs to be upgraded soon) on a Sabertooth P67 Mobo.
HIS Radeon HD 6950 IceQ X Turbo 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, Dual DisplayPort -
I'm more comfortable with ATI too but I would have to buy that at regular price. I can get the MSI for $200 from a friend of mine who is selling it brand new. I just wanted to know if there was a difference in performance when it came to both cards.
They are real close in performance, with each winning some of the benchmarks when pitted against each other. Over all the 6950 wins more than the 560Ti, but not by much in many cases. This may be due to this comparison being a 2gb 6850, and a 1gb 560Ti. I dont think you would notice a difference in real world game play http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/510?vs=547
