Graphics card or console? - Page 5

post #41 of 64
Thread Starter 
The gtx 560 ti is very closely priced to the hd 6950 2 GB so I have to consider it. Which one is better? Performance wise and features wise? I understand the hd 6950 outperforms the the 560ti but what about the features like eyefinity, physx and 3d etc? One thing that concerns me is that the hd 6950 is almost a year old.

Also can somebody recommend me a psu. I was thinking corsair tx 850.

I would suggest getting a console instead, they provide a superior gaming experience to PC and most of the games have the same or better graphics than PC anyways.

Its actually a 4.2Ghz i5 750, but yea the consoles do give better graphics. I just use this machine for intense multitasking between internet / word / email. The consoles clearly provide the better gaming experience, they are made specifically for gaming.
