Depends on the game. Both are on par with each other. Would be a coin-flip decision for me.

yes a 6870 on par with a 560. but an overclocked 6870 can perform beside a stock 560ti. basically its a really good card at 1440x900. im on 1080p and i can run most games on high/max detail at over 30-40fps which is good enough for my eyes.

@ 1440x900 any card in the ballpark of performance of a 6870 will chew up and spit out any game you toss in its general direction.

find a 560 or 6870 as cheap as possible and you're good to go
