<$200 GPU 2GB

I've seen plenty of benchmarks and numbers and reviews on plenty of cards.
I'm still deciding between the HD 6850/70 2gb & GTX 560 2gb

Any opinions would be helpful


The Zotac doesnt have much info on it, and someone said it overheats easily, although it outperforms both 6870 and the 6850 from what I've seen.

  1. Why do you need 2GB VRAM? I know for a fact the 6850 can't utilize 2GB, I have a 1GB version and the most I've seen used is 800MB.
  2. 2x 1980x1200 monitors, I figured it would be good considering i game on one and play 1080p videos on the other.
    I figure if i can get 2gb under 200 with the same gpu, why not?
  3. The 6870 is a better card vs 560 (non Ti)

    If it is the 560 Ti version it will be better than 6870

    videos don't use much vram at all. so 1 1200p monitor will not need more than 1 gb. I suggest the 560 ti 1gb models for something like that.
