Graphics card for bellow £150 help please

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i have not built a pc in a couple of years now so dont know whats best for that money,i know the 7 series of the ati cards is on its way out but wanted something now i found a new 560 ti for £149.99 but there is a 6950 1gb for £162.99 is it worth the extra over that? the other card i have seen is the HD 6870 that was £125 so is it worth spending the extra there or use the money on a better cooler and overclock more,is there any other cards people could recommend? thanks

I live in america so prices are higher, but for me a 550 ti is a solid purchase, they have overclocked versions for alot less than 150! you could easily just put one in your system and have no problem.

For your sig rig? With a 6850 in it?

If so, don't bother. Wait and save a little more and get one of the mid-range next gen chips instead. And overclock your GPU some - I had a 6850 at 960c 1150m for daily gaming and the jump to my 6950@ 6970 effective clocks has been nice but was questionably worth it.

If not, I think the 6950 would only be better if it was a 2gb model, but the 560ti and 6950 should trade blows. Get the one that can overclock the best.
