Which is the better graphics card?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.
I'm looking at a few video cards, and don't know which one I should get.
ASUS ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5

SPARKLE SXX5801536D5NM

XFX HD-695X-CDFC

XFX HD-697A-CNFC

Which one should I get? I'm leaning more towards the 6970.

Get the GTX 570. Truly a beast of a card.

A single 570 maxed out BC2 at 2304x1440 @ 85Hz.

Which I wouldn't recommend, as $100+ difference for 15% more performance is silly .

I would say 570 or 6970, depending on your company loyalty. The 580 is nice, but probably not worth the extra $$.

Owning a HD6950 and a GTX 570 I would go for ATI. In fact I pulled the trigger on a 2nd HD6950. However, I would probably go for a HD6950 than a HD6970 re price/performance.

I rebuilt an old computer with NVIDIA, and I'm really thinking of trying ATI. I've only used ATI on another old computer in my living room.

6970 fo sure.

A 2Gb GTX 570 with AMD drivers (currently better at the moment) with CFX scaling that beats GTX 580 SLI on some occasions is win. It has Eyefinity over 3 different monitors, and the ability to CFX with 6990 in the future. Sure, it doesnt have Physx and Cuda, but do you really use them?
