ATI or Nvidia?
LOL
Well the 6950 is a better performer all the way but I'd still choos the 560ti because I'm an Nvidia fanboy.

More power in the 6950, but i don't know about overclock of both of them

I'm asking because I don't know which one to get, right no I have the Gigabyte hd 6950OC edition @ 920/1470 but, I don't know if a 560 would be faster at 1000+ core.

I get 5914 on 3Dmark11 with it at 4.8ghz 2500k
I'm having a major dillema

I'd pick the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II.

But for that price, why dont you just drop in the OCN marketplace and grab yourself two 460's and put them in SLI? It will cost the same or might be a little cheaper and would wipe the floor with both the 560Ti, 6950, 6870 and 580.

I had the 560 but, I returned it for a 6950 the one I have now. And I don't know which is better, so, I'm asking OCN now.

@Birdman,
I got the 560 for $200 and 6950 for $205

Is it a 1Gb or 2Gb 6950? Doesn't really make a difference, but in most benchmarks and real-world scenarios, the 6950 pulls ahead slightly. Of course, there are some games that favor nVidia.
