6850 or 6950 question?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys im returning my p67 board for a z68 since im still within the 30 day rma period. I do a decent amount of video encodes.

Anyways i have a XFX 6950 non ref. card right now (ref. cards have been sold out for the past 2 weeks. However, im not sure if i even need a 6950.

I mainly do video encodes, play wow and SC II.

Whats the cheapest card that can i WOW and SC II at Max settings at a good FPS. Will a 6870 suffice?

please let me know what you guys think. Im open to nvidia cards as well.

6950 1GB, get this and you're set it'll handle all that beautifully, plus it'll leave headroom in the future
