Choosing from GTX 560 non ti vs HD 6870

so the title says it, not all.... im planning to choose one of these cards gtx 560 non ti and HD 6870.
im looking for the types of cooling which are good and not expensive not like the cyclone, ice q, asus ii cu top(not sure of the name) and like that...

as a gamer, i want to use these cards on gaming... i want to play MAX settings on all games at 1366x768 resolution (max reso.)
games such as crysis, gta 4 and all other demanding games..

im currently having a 500W aerocool strike-x 80 plus bronze(idk what that means) but all i know that it is not generic but is branded..

and oh, if u mind, here are my specs :

core i3 2100 @ 3.1 GHz
8 GB ram g.skill ripjaws 1333mhz ddr3
ECS H61h2-m2 (b3)
Aerocool VS-4 (chassis)

and oh, i also got confused on what to get among those, having the nvidia packed with physx and the 6870 with brute force only..
physx to me was eyecandy, but not all games run physx coz they have physx on their own,.. anyways, ppl says that 6870 performs faster than
the gtx 560 non ti, but has no physx as i have stated earlier.... so, help me what to choose?

oh lastly, i plan to OC the GPU a bit, to achieve higher FPS than expected, ...


thank you for reading, any answers will be greatly appreciated.. thanks in advance.

    You'd probably want the 560 for overclocking. Both cards are basically the same in terms of performance stock, but the 560 can go higher I believe.

    This MSI one should be good.

  2. hd 6870 for price and performance and better performance in 1080p resolution.:)
