So, I'm going to play low-end games nothing to heavy. I don't know if spending $230 on a Radeon 6950 will be worth it. The GTX 560 (non Ti) Is at $189.99 and a $30 MIR = $159.99 -- Of course the Radeon 6950 has a $30 MIR too, but is still $200. I'm below my budget but I think my GPU is a bit overkill in terms of what games I'll be playing. But, I still like to see high FPS.
I'd like someone to tell me which one would better suite me, please don't pick a video card over another because one is AMD and the other is nVida. If possible, please tell me which brand it is with a link. I hope I'm not asking to much. Thank you very much.

What games are you playing again?

Also what is your budget? You said $200 is below your budget.

Yeah, it is. Though, the only kind of games I'll be playing is like League of Legends, Maybe Diablo III, and that's really only it. Probably other games juts can't think of any, oh and Microsoft flight simulator!

6870 if you're a light gamer it handles every game out just fine.

6870 can handle all of those games at max. No need for a 560ti or anything else.

It stands at $190 before MIR after MIR $160 do you think I should toss out the extra $40 for a 6950 just so I can future proof my GPU a little longer?

If you plan to play more games than just D3, yes.

Will I plan on playing League of Legends and other sorts of games, I'll probably rent some games to see if I actually want to buy them.
