HD6870 or GTX 560 (Non-Ti) - Page 2

post #11 of 12
No, the 560 is not the 460. Clock for clock they perform identically but the 560 will clock much higher than the 460.

The 560 would be a better choice if you didn't already have a 6870 because it overclocks much better.

I have used the 6870 ... they are a good card and you can max out on almost every game (except for Crysis 2 and Metro 2033 so far I have tried). As for the SC2 issue, I am not sure about 'drop in FPS'. I am sure its plays good in max settings, but if you are complaining and doubting a card's ability because it drops from 70 fps to 60 fps for example than I don't know what to recommend lol.

As others stated if you are getting the non Ti version than go with the GTX 460 they can be bought for $125 and save you like $100.
