Hey guys- I need your help choosing between the 560 TI and a 6950
It will be used on a 1080p display
Which one performs better? They currently cost the same.
Your opinions count! Other options will be considered also. I'm looking for the best gpu in the sub $250 range. Thanks!

The 6950 is a better performer, and it is a good overclocker.

They're pretty much even but I would go with the 560ti, with an intel mobo it's going to support sli instead of crossfire by default and Gigabyte doesn't have the best history with customer support.

6950 2gb vram. I have owned both, and both were solid. The 560 can be had a little cheaper now so that must also be considered.

Since you linked to both 1gb models definitely the 560 ti.

Well I could get the 2GB version for $10 more... but I 'm not sure it's needed for 1080p.

I have to replace the gpu in my virtual racecar.

Not sure about the 2 GB- Check this out from a comparison review taken from guru of 3d

"Final Words & Conclusion
So first off, did you guys check the difference in-between the 1GB and 2GB 6950 versions as well, yeah ... the results are nearly NIL. The added benefit of an extra full GB is excruciatingly hard to measure, even with all games setup with the best image quality settings, hefty shaders and massive textures. The reality is that for 98% of you with today's games 1 GB is absolutely sufficient."

accompaning graph-


According to this review, the 6950 comes out on top,at the price of more heat, noise and power consumption, but thats with referance designs and stock clocks.

Seems pretty much of a toss up, thats why I want the votes
