Hi, i'm getting a new GPU and when i was ordering the gtx560 , the 6950 got my attention .
The 560ti is 210€ here in Portugal and the 6950 is only 190€ . I've heard that the 6950 it's better , but i don't know.
BTW , i need a new PSU for the GPU , so I was thinking about the Corsair 600w. Will it still work ? What do u think ?
Thanks for your time ;)

the corsair cx600 will do the job with either video card

check out specific games that you play (or want to play) and how each card does in them. the cards are often neck and neck so if budget is an issue, get the cheaper one. either way, you won't make a bade decision.

they aren't neck to neck in most games 6950 beats the gtx 560ti with good frame rates.

well lets look at the video tape

AMD does better in crysis & metro

in Dirt 3...OMG they are neck and neck

same thing with shogun

and in BF3, and portal. now thats four games they are neck and neck in

Nvidia does better in Batman

AMD does better in skyrim

Nvidia does better in SC2 & civ 5

so yes in some games they are neck and neck, in some AMD does better and in some Nvidia. looks like you are wrong, you failed. go back to start and try again little noob. you just got your ass kicked, kind of like AMD does in SC2 by Nvidia.

P.S. I don't care what card he gets but if all he does is play SC2, batman, and Civ5 then Nvidia makes sense. Crysis, metro, and several other games are clearly favor AMD. An open mind is a wise mind. A close mind is an idiot fan boy.

neck to neck in some games, and in some games AMD 6950 has taken the lead, so overall 6950 is still better :)

:pfff: 

if you want to help, post facts to help them make their decision. don't post your opinion just to push your personal purchase. between the two cards, i would personally go for the AMD 6950. if all i did was play SC2 & Civ5 (i don't) then its a different story.

haha! The facts is 6950 is better choice for the OP, posting up my own opinion give better idea to the OP that's why OP asked which is better, so everyone have different opinions.
