Reference (and many non-reference) HD6950/70s will be MUCH louder and generally warmer than a reference GTX560 Ti. Just something to keep in mind since you mentioned a cool and quiet requirement

^indeed. Just go for a non-reference GTX 560 Ti/6950. Any of these two will handle your resolution perfectly fine.

A reference 560 is quiet.

just one more question guys how good is the 6950 at scaling and tessellation and such?
post #20 of 42
its awesome...although nvidia's tessellation engine is a little better...
but thats not usually a deal breaker as most games r non dx11 and r ports.....
so they dont actually use tessellation even though they run on dx11 api....
