Whether I should go Powercolor 1GB 6870 or Asus GTX 560 Tags: Graphics Cards Asus Gtx PowerColor Graphics Product Last response: July 10, 2012 6:49 AM in Graphics & Displays Share MatW July 10, 2012 6:03:51 AM Hello, I am going to be building a budget gaming pc and I was wondering whether I should go for a Powercolor 1GB 6870 or a Asus GTX 560, however in terms of price the Powercolor is cheaper. My other parts will be: AMD-FX 6200 ASUS M5A97-EVO AM3 DDR3 Motherboard - $121 Kingston HyperX 8G (4x2) DDR3 1600 LG SATA Black DVD RW Seagate Barracuda 500GB Cooler Master Centurion II W/ PSU - $99 I'm not completely sure about the motherboard and case, if you have any changes to these that have similar prices it'll be much appreciated. BTW, the 6870 is worth $140, whilst the GTX 560 is worth $180.
