recommendation for 200$ GPU - Page 3

post #21 of 42
The GTX560 or the Radeon HD 6870. They both preform the same (actually, the 6870 is faster but by one frame per second)

Im with you.
As I said earlier, if there is a big advantage I will pay a bit more.

The question is which one will give me the best deal consider Im planing to OC it.

Okay...It goes back to what I had said earlier. If you play games that uses physX and that is a feature you desire, buy the 460/560. If you only care about performance, I recommend the 460 over the 6850 OR the 6870 over the 560. If you can save the extra $$$ for the higher tier card, I say do it & buy the 6870 if it's only performance you care about it. Better performance at higher resolutions is in favor for the 6870.

I think you should go with the GTX 560Ti because It oc's like a beast. You will be pleasantly surprised with it for a year or so.

GTX 460 based on your prices. There isn't a big change from the 560 from the 460.

Okay so lets narroy it down - from what I know physX is not that importent, so lets say its performance I prefer.

I can afford the 6870, now the question is how far can I take it with OC compare to how far I can take the 6850 with OC - I ask because I heard that the 6870 is closer to its limits even with OC.

6870 OCs very well.

AMD cards are cooler then nvidia cards usually and should OC higher due to the temperature restriction.

I would get a 6870 and OC it
