I'm currently working on a new Ivy Bridge system. I've been looking at two video cards that are in my budget and fit my needs. I've been using nvidia cards for years and never had any major issues. AMD makes some nice cards and has a good money = performance and I'm willing to try one. Thing that has stuck between the two is that Nvidia has PhysX technology. I've seen some demos of the tech and love what it can do. So I'm not sure which I should go with. I'd just like some opinions about these two cards and about the extra tech behind both nvidia and AMD. Thanks
HD 6870 is a bit faster than the GTX 560. You can OC the HD 6870 too.
Physx? Even GTX 560 isn't strong enough to handle the most advanced games with Physx technology, you need at least something like GTX 580. And FYI most games depend on CPU Physx not GPU Accelerated Physx...and ONLY Metro 2033, Mafia II Batman AC worth playing with Physx
