I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck. 300.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at getting a new card this friday. I'm currently looking at the MSI R6950, priced at 299. But, if anyone knows a much better deal, please suggest. My mobo doesn't have an extra slot for crossfire. So I need the best I can get for 300. I want a black and blue card since it's a black and blue build. Or just a black card. Thanks guys.

560 Ti is better and cheaper than the 6950.

I was going to get a 6950, too. But it does seem it's a lot better value for money, unless you're gaming at stupid resolutions

Personally I think the best 560 Ti would be the MSI version, mainly because I was able to get it to heavily overclock (1GHz core)

Get the MSI Twinfrozr from NCIX US its 272 before a 25 dollar rebate! I ordered mine two days ago. Free Deus EX and Dirt 3.

I own a toxic 6950 and recently owned a MSI 560ti twin frozr III and I can tell you both are fantastic cards. Since the toxic is no longer available definitely go with the 560ti TFIII

I was referring to the MSi Twin Frozr III 6950 2gb,
chances are the card is unlockable and can OC usually very nicely.

Or NCIX has the gtx570 for 249 after MIR
