Radeon Msi 6950 2gb with current processor or other?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The card i'm looking at
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Radeon-Express-Graphics-R6950-2PM2D2GD5/dp/B004G5YXV2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top"]Amazon.com: MSI Radeon HD 2 GB DDR5 256 Bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 Graphics Card R6950-2PM2D2GD5: Electronics[/ame]
I currently have a E6750 Duo core none overclocked due to odd internet errors from the AI overclocking and am looking in buying a new graphics card.

Another Card i'm now Considering

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500196&Tpk=Zotac%20Gtx%20560%20Ti%20Amp
The maximum price I can currently afford is around 270-280$ for this card with free shipping i'm planning on ordering off amazon but I was wondering if theres better and cheaper cards that can still unlock into 6970's

I currently have a 550 watt power supply and my case is a emachines D3107

I was considering this card as well

My question is if I got this card would my Power Supply or Processor throttle it and in that case what would be the best performing card for price.

And finally the last card would be a

I think any of those GPUs will suffer from that CPU.

EDIT: Yes, definitely, it is 10-20% slower than my prev Ath II 260, which was bottlenecking HD4870, and the cards you have listed are 5x 4870 smile.gif
