I've had them both and tested with Metro, Crysis and AvP, 3DMark11, 6950 @ 960MHz core is faster than GTX 560 @ 1000 MHz core. Probably in some games they will be the same or 560 will be slightly faster.

From what I understand the 560 ti OC'd and 6950 OC'd seem to trade blows on different games. While the 560 ti might be a little weaker, I believe that it's a negligible difference. With both cards being close in performance, I chose the 560 ti because it's quieter, cooler, and smaller.

"Quieter" and "cooler" is really dependent on the specific cards you are looking at. There is an assortment of non-reference coolers available for both the 560 Ti and the 6950. Some of them even use the same coolers. (e.g. Gigabyte Windforce, MSI Twin Frozr II/III)

A few days ago I got my Msi Twin Frozr II 560 ti and I'm really impressed with the performance over my 4850.

I was able to get a stable overclock from 822mhz to 960mhz @ stock volts (1.0370). I took your guys' advice and left the GPU memory clock at stock since it probably won't affect my overall performance much.

Plus the card is much quieter compared to my 4850 which was basically a mini vacuum. Also, I was kind of surprised that the 560 ti's PCB was a little bit shorter than my 4850's, lol.

The card runs a bit hotter than I thought though. Maybe its because its because I live in California and it's summer atm (82 degrees f). The card idles at 35-50 c and under stress the max temp I saw was 70c. My 4850 idled at 40c but never reached 60c. Though I suppose any temperature below 80c should be fine for my card.
