Get the 560 Ti. Besides the very nice price, 1GB will be more than enough to play at 1080p. Heat won't be an issue as mine idles around 28C and never rises past 70C. Adding to that noise is minimal since most good Ti's have the after market coolers so they barely make a sound. Plus you get cuda, physx yada yada.

I got my 560 Ti to 1030 core which is essentially as fast as 570 so 560 Ti over a 6950.

I voted 560Ti, I was surprised to see so many votes for the 6950. Especially if you are using just one monitor and are using 1920x1080 resolution. If you are going higher like your sig rig monitor at x1600 resolution then you may benefit from the extra V Ram.

You do know that a 6950 will also do about 1Ghz right? Its not about the number but the % over stock. A 6950 @ 1Ghz is overclocked ~25% from stock, and a 560 Ti @ 1030 is overclocked ~25%.. so the performance difference would be the same as it would be at stock, presuming the memory also overclocks the same, but the memory itself gives a larger performance boost to the 6950 than it would to the 560 Ti, meaning the 6950 would be faster.

I don't understand why people would say a 560 Ti overclocks much better when they, on average, overclock about the same. There are the odd 560 Ti's that will go further but its all luck of the draw. Why would somebody buy a slower card (at stock) for more when you can get a faster card (at stock also) for less. Its like having the choice of buying a 300HP Evo X or one with 400HP, and going for the one that is 300 and then tuning it up (overclocking). It would be better just to get the 400HP one.. forgive the weird analogy.

He's comparing the 1GB 6950 in the OP not 2GB.

My vote goes for 560ti too, It has never even blinked at any game I've played at 1080p, except for shogun 2 haha, Honestly, I think you'd be happy with either or, but my vote goes for 560 ti cause I love mine

Nvidia seems to be making a comeback - but AMD still has a comfortable lead

Do you guys think that the 6950 is longer in length than a gtx 295? I'm pretty cramped in that department, I could maybe fit 1/2" or so longer than the 295 that I'll be replacing.

It's just under 11" long. 10.5 or so I think

There's a huge difference between a 300HP engine and one with 400HP. Between the 6950 and 560, not so much. Looking at the reviews, when the 6950 wins its usually not by a lot, and the 560 wins a few games too.

Plus Nvidia has a lot of perks like PhysX and CUDA and way better tessellation, which is why the 560 wins at heaven and Crysis 2. I'm surprised you didn't know that since you have so many Nvidia cards.

OP you should probably just get the 570 since it's better than every AMD card out right now.

The nvidia is smaller, quieter, and runs cooler too.

Not that the quiet part matters at all to me for where it's going, and I'm pretty sure the heat will be fine (considering the 295 thats in there now)

Well actually there is a noticeable difference in most of the "common" games where it is generally ~10% faster which is quite a difference according to this review. Sure, the 560 Ti is about as fast in some other games but Black Ops and MW2 aren't really hard to run or pretty and CV IV/SC2 and JC2 are NVIDIA favouring. The principle still applies though. Why pay more for something slower?

Depends on the model. Between the 2 specific cards in the OP, they will run at about the same temps, but that Gigabyte cooler is really good.
