560 or 6870 or even 6850

I was wondering if I should get the gtx 560 which is on sale for 150 or should I stick with getting the 6870 or even 6850 for the best bang for the buck?

    I have a 6850 in my computer currently and it's an amazing card. But, all in all I'm pretty sure the 560 will rock it's world. If you want a better card from AMD you'd probably have to get the 6870. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-4.html shows that the 6870 and 560 are about equal.


    Read in the article for the best value from Tom's hardware! :D
  2. Get the gtx560. It performs generally better than (or trading blows at the least with) the 6870 & more so vs the 6850 but at $150 it is better bang for buck.
  3. Well here is the side by side blow for blow difference in the cards. As you will see the 560 non ti will be very close to the 6870 as the 6870 is neck in neck with the 560 Ti.

    The 560 ti are starting at $179.99 with rebate and some are going for $199.99 with rebate. I hope this all helps and good luck to you.
