100 pages?

Both are good brands. The question is better asked if you tell us a budget. Then we can compare what you can get with that money and tell you which card specifically that would optimize price vs performance.

Yes ma'am they do. With a modded 6950 bios they do. I know of at least two that have done it so far.

I also know of people who have unlocked reference and non-reference cards. And people that have unlocked cards with and without a bios switch. 1g and 2g both. . I just formatted my pc and lost my link to the tech power up forum link. But im sure I can find before the weekend is out.

Bull! You can not mod the 6950 1GB card. Please show of this.

The unlock isn't as great as people say it is, but is *IS* an improvement, perhaps a 1-2% increase in frame rates. It depends on your card whether the extra shaders are stable when overclocked as to whether you're better off just clocking the card with stock shaders or unlocking. Try it both ways.
AMD still has driver issues, but it is a much lesser problem for single GPU setups. They're getting better. If you plan on a dual GPU setup, then I'd still suggest going Nvidia, but for single cards, it's down to price now. 560ti vs 6950, get whichever has the most Vram for the money and offers the best value.

That's why I said wait till I can find the link again. No need to be offensive.

I would definitely get a 6950 1GB, it outperforms the gtx 560 ti, is cheaper and also has a better choice of output formats. This card in particular seems to be quite good bang for the buck...

The 6950's are the best bang for buck. Since your not crossfiring all of that mentioned above is pointless. Nothing wrong with either option though. A used 480 is still valid and makes a nice space heater. A 560 is a solid card. The 6950 will eat it though. In case I didn't read the reply where the 5th person corrected the mistake, 1GB 6950's don't unlock and neither do some of the new PCB designs apparently.

Though even without an unlock a 6950 will trump a 560 in 90% of games. Really depends on your wallet and what you want. Multimonitor I find AMD more friendly, but multi-GPU setups finds NVidia on top for ease of setup.

Ultimately? No wrong answer. Browse some benchmarks and go with what you like the sound of more.
