Nvidea or AMD? ( And wish GPU ) - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I sure your rig at the moment you can play every game at high settings no problem, so i say wait and get it cheaper, but if you can't go ahead and buy it, you won't feel bad...
As you can see in my rig details i have the 6950, i'm going to wait until i can't max any game before i get a second card....

Batman Arkham Asylum/City are well worth playing in PhysX. IMHO.

I agree with you. I liked what I saw in the previews.

What games are you playing/intend to play with you rig? As some point out before, PhysX is only supported by a handful of games.

If you already own a 6870 just buy a second.

I love NVIDIA graphic cards but Physx is basically worthless. If you are going to upgrade, do not get the regular 560... get the ti models.

theres not much out there that holds up too 2x6870's, as far as single cards go. to me it would be worth getting the second one unless physics mean that much to ya

Seriously, if your not playing any games with Physx then keep the 6870 and crossfire it with another.

Less expensive route for your tight budget upgrade and will get more performance than one GTX 560Ti, unless you SLI it.

Physx is not a requirement to play your games. It brings extra detail where game developers used Physx.

IS there a difference between games with or without Physx? IS it worth it?


Unless you have in mind to keep the 3D vision gaming and watching 3D blu-ray movies door open then go GTX 560Ti other wise I repeat stay with the 6870 and crossfire it.

Nvidia does tesselation a bit better but both render it and two 6870's won't have any problems with heavy tesselation games like Battlefield 3.

Good luck bud with your sig rig upgrade.
