Reference 6950 or a gtx 480? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
6950 definitely. A 480 will be hot and noisy in that case. Not only will it run hot but it'll make any room you're in very hot too.

I don't know if fx's failure still in my mind, but I would tend to go for the GTX480. I've owned some AMD and Nvidia cards and even though these might look like a close match for speeds, I find the nvidia cards to be just that little bit better, I don't know if its the smoothness or the drivers, I'm just saying I wouldn't bother to go with the AMD side any longer....
