If you're only looking at 1GB 6950s the 560 Ti is better because of the drivers.

I agree with this. I would definitely get the 560ti in this case. The big advantage a 6950 has would be the extra VRAM. And please don't listen to the 500 people that are going to post on here "Get a 6950 and unlock it to a 6970" because VERY few 6950s are unlock-able anymore. I'm not saying it can't be done, but it's not as easy as it used to be.

It CAN be if you buy the right card *cough*TOXIC*cough*



... but overall in general, you are correct !

To the OP though ... WHY are you only looking at the 1GB cards ? personally I wouldn't suggest any of those particular cards to you, try these ...

nVidia GTX-560ti 2GB cards =

I agree. I guess I meant the non-easy part would be finding the right card. I see 10 million of these threads and so many times people just suggest the 6950 for that sole reason, then I see a thread a few days later saying "Why can't my 6950 unlock?" lol.

Love Nvidia users coming to the general GPU forum polluting threads with "AMD drivers are crap."

AMD drivers, as of recently, are very good and stable. People saying otherwise don't know their stuff. A 6950 is superior to the 560, and in Crossfire it absolutely demolishes the 560.

I'm super sick of hearing that from everyone as well. I think every other thread started on OCN for a while was related to that very topic.

**edit** about unlocking 6950's, not about drivers.
