Please help me choose, which one should I buy for better fps in games? Both cards are ASUS Direct CU series and both cost the same, should I go with the GTX560 for better drivers or will the HD6870 offer me better performance in games like Crysis 2, Metro 2033 etc.

So here's the GTX 560:

And here's the HD6870:

And if there are any possible benchmarks which compare the fps with both cards directly I would be very happy to see it ;) 

Thanks,
Kamil

Thanks, I guess it's the HD6870 then ;)  But I'm surprised about skyrim maxed out, 23.2 on HD6870 vs 45.7 on GTX560 :o  Does skyrim use Physx or is it just an nvdia optimized game?

Actually it turns out that the benchmarks were taken before AMD released their Skyrim optimized drivers -.- So the average framerate is now similar to or even greater then the GTX560 ;)

Cool have fun with your gaming rig I was actually going to get the 6870 to go with my i5 2500k but I found a 7850 for $220. Good card!!

Thanks ;)  I might buy a second HD6870 and run in Crossfire in the near future instead of buying a new gen card but I'll have to wait and see. Have fun with the 7850 as well :p
