Amd 6970 2gb or Nvidia gtx 560 ti 2gb

Hello,

I have a choice between nvidia gtx 560 ti 2gb or amd HD6970 2gb for 2560x1440 resolution gaming. I also want to know if these cards can run them at that resolution, i cannot get sli because its too much for my budget =[.

Thank you.

    He wants to play at a really high resolution, one where the 1gb 7850 will definitely struggle. I vote for the 6970. :)

    The HD7850 is 2GB, GCN cores, better compute and greater future potential at 50w less than an HD6970.

    And it comes built-in with a likely 20% over-clock

  15. Look at this becnhmark
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/509?vs=549
    The 6970 is little better but i think the 7850 with low power and more overclock head room is better, but if the 7850 costs more for you than the 6970 by more than 15-20$ go with the 6970.
  16. The 7850 has 100W lower consumption under stress as seen in this benchmark.

    That 100W is a lot of money saved.
  17. Just an FYI non of those cards will get you to "Awsome" settings on a 2560x1440 screen You will have to go top tier ALA 7970 or 680 both of your cards you are selecting from will be struggling quite a bit with any AA or details at max.

    Okay, my apologies, i dunno why I remembered some graphs of anandtech showing it to lagg behing even the 6950 @ very high resolutions. :pt1cable: But, ultimately thently is correct. @ that resolution, if the user wants all the glory for atleast next couple of yers, a 7970 is a must if the GTX 680 is not available. :) GL!!
  19. Well, if you ever plan on going crossfire I suggest a 6970. The 6970 is a mega-beast when you get it in crossfire, although it's not real impressive on it's own.
