6950 or 560TI.
Same price, nearly same performance? So whichever you pick its good.

I've always used Nvidia cards. They are always the cheaper brand at the time that I want to buy one. I was contemplating buying the 6950 or the 560 Ti, but went with the 560T for the PhysX and the cheaper price. Sure, the 6950 has more memory and is better than the 560T at higher res. but I didn't find it worth the extra $50.

I have both. Currently running ATI thought. Went with the 6850 as I don't need bleeding edge tech and I like the fact that it has a single 6pin pci vs. the 460s' 2 pcis. Going to pair up another and that should give me good performance. (note: I run amd, so no native sli).

As stated before, check the benches, then check your bank account a buy accordingly. Both are great right now - pretty much comparing apples to apples.
It's so little!

Personally I've owned 3 Nvidia's, I'm not necessarily a fan boy but i do prefer Nvidia. That said before the 4XX series came out I was thinking about getting 2 5770's but at the time of buying the 2 460's where the best bang for my money so I went from 9800GTX 512MB to 2 GTX460's.

So echoing what others have said it really boils down to what card has the best Performance : Price ratio.
However it also depends what you want to do; for example I have 3x20" screens and I'd never go with AMD eyefinity (unless I was going to go Xfire) because even though you can run it on 1 card you'd need a £60+ adapter for the display port, IT MAKES NO SENSE!! if your going to pay an extra £60 you may aswell dish out a little more doungh, get a 2nd card and get a 2x performance increase
Plus Nvidia has Physx but thats hardly that great considering not many developers bother incorporating it into their games.
BUT (god I am starting to sound like a fan boy now but I promise I'm not if an AMD card top trumps an Nvidia for the same money, I'd go with the AMD one) Nvidia does have CUDA which is used by a few applications here and there like Badaboom for example.

rant over xD

For me it depends on the price. Both companies try to be competitive even if it doesn't always work out.

This time last year when I purchased my 470, the competition's HD5870 was $50 more expensive, that's without any fancy cooling or anything. It was the obvious choice to go Nvidia, especially since I also wanted to play Mafia 2 which benefits from PhysX.

I prefer Nvidia. I have had 3 ATI cards burn out in the past. I havent had any problems with Nvidia and they typically tend to be cards I interact with at work and at school.
