6950 vs 6970?!?!?! - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ah ok guys ive changed my mind again!!! Im goin back to the twin frozr III 6950 - looks beast.
Ok Jemping i have a question for you now (wrong forum but w/e)- im probably gonna go for the 975/980 instead of 965. I am write in saying that I will get better gaming performance with either of these than with the 6core phenoms? And once overclocked wont be bottlenecking my gpu?

A 6core won't give a gain really. Get a 955, the 975/980 are the exact same chips just OC'd higher out of the box. They all OC the same pretty much.

Just got me some 6950s, reference, and they were still about ~$70 cheaper than the next cheapest 6970. Im running 5760x1080, so these guys will make a difference compared to my gtx 470s

If you don't care about gaming on more than one monitor or running anything higher than 1920x1080/1900x1200, 1GB versions (non-reference) are skimming the $200 mark.

really? i though that was just between the 955/965? would i not get more oc'ing headroom with a 975/980? although the prospect of getting a 955 is quite tempting, might save for a better mobo or a 6970 instead!

So what'd you decide to do with your card?

not really sure, think i might wait till bulldozers come out (june right?) and then get a 975 or something. Hopefully a price drop will leave me with some cash for a 570 which would be badass!
