6950 2Gb or 5970 2Gb - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I say 6950 2Gb. More VRAM, cooler, less hungry, improved tesselation, no driver or game issues regarding scaling. Not to mention later down the line, adding another 6950 would absolutely spank a 5970. But it's up to you.

He got it as bundle when he bought some other parts. He uses his system only for browsing and movies.

I were hoping that most of you would have approved the 5970, seems like I was wrong. Anyway considering that most of you support the 6950, I think I'll stick with it and buy another one down the line.
Thanks all of you guys.

that's more than a year ago i think. I bought my 5970 during retail. I replaced it with a gtx 470 SLi because I got into folding. I just got back to amd/ati
