I watched the video you posted one time with that interview with "the booty warrior" i lol'd so hard.

op: I think the the 6950 is better price/performance. Im a long time nvidia fan, but I have been contemplating trying out a couple amd cards. Havent decided what im going to do yet. Thinking maybe a couple 6970's w/ ek blocks. If the price is right.

The thing is OP, the 560Ti is roughly 5% better then a 6870, and the 6950 is roughly 10% better then the 6870, depending on which tests are performed.

My suggestion would be for a single 570/6970... One of the revised 570's without the VRam issue.

well after thinking about it for awhile, maybe i need to do some overclocking on my cpu and mobo. maybe my unhappiness is coming from bottle necking? maybe i'm not seeing the full performance of my cards?

That could be the case, those cards should be able to power 2560x1600/1440 with very good FPS, when limiting AA due to the 1gb of VRAM, it's a very beefy setup mate, and should see you through BF3 at 1080p...

Keep your AMD 6870's in crossfire until gaming actually catches up with you. Going to one AMD 6950 or GTX 560ti 2GB card or not will be less performance.

Single monitor isn't going to see any performance gains going from 1GB to 2GB anyway unless your going to SLI or Crossfire the other card eventually.

If you dead set on taking a step backward then either card is very closely trading blows. Read an article on Maximum PC and out of seven tests the 6950 won 4 and the 560ti won 3. Niether ran away from the others scores.

If you think someday of going multiple monitors then go AMD.

If you think someday of going 3D vision gaming or 3D movies go Nvidia.

If your not thinking of either then choose what you want, can't make a wrong decision as they are both going to serve you well.

Keep em, and get that Deneb to 4.0, especially with that great cooler. Your current setup is far better than the single card paths you're looking at.

Not exactly the same Mal, he already has cards in Xfire and is looking to goto a single card.

Neither card will be anywhere near as fast as two 6870's...
