6950 vs 560ti
560ti vs 6970
570 vs 6970

Note: the 6950 unlocked = 6970

Quiet about the RAM already, won't make a significant enough difference as long as he isn't running a Llano build where RAM can provide an actual bottleneck.

That said, you don't really need $800 for a rig to play SWTOR, but an i5-2500K, 560ti 448-core (preferably Twin Frozr model by MSI if you don't want it to sound like a vacuum cleaner under load), and upwards of 4 GB of RAM are all good recommendations.

Do you not know what a 560 ti 448 core is?

6970 vs 560 ti 448 core

Keep in mind that the bench also doesn't factor in that the fact that you can overclock the 560 ti 448 core to 570 speeds, making things look even better for the 560 ti.

I'm just using information I've seen in a thread. If i was misinformed then what ever. From what it seems I was just get the 2 x 4gb. (a website)

Sorry didn't see that but still doesn't make too much of a difference though for the same price the 6970 has better gaming performance.

In terms of performance they're equal. There are advantages over one another but nothing too major. AMD cards can run on 3 monitors, while NVidia cards can run two. NVidia has 3d, when AMD doesn't. AMD cards usually scale better with resolution, while Nvidia cards scale better with Anti-Aliasing.

Two cards are very similar but also different. Personal preference wins in this argument.

2X4 gb for RAMS..don't populate all the slots..it'll stress the memory controller more
as for the gpu..eh..make sure you get 2gb vram
460 or 6870 imo (to be cheap)

I would still choose the 560 ti 448, due to the fact that it's an excellent overclocker and would put any card in it's price range a really good fight.

That is why I added the benchmarks. Oh you changed it.
