I cant stand the Mouse lag whenever vsync is on.

Run the Simple Borderless Window mod on Skyrim Nexus, force it to fullscreen in window mode using your native resolution, that should eliminate vsync caused mouse lag; works like charm for me.

Anybody have any experience with either of these cards and running skyrim heavily modded to comment on the choice between one or the other. Does the game run smoothly with heavy textures mods and this amount of Vram? I've been on Nvidia cards ever since I've started gaming on Pc's and have heard horrible stories about AMD drivers, but that won't scare me away as I believe most of it is from ignorance or not doing enough research.
 



I can't comment on the 570 but I can give you an idea of the HD6870's performance. I own a XFX HD6870 1gb and I'm playing at 1920x1080. My performance remarks regarding running a heavily modified Skyrim on my sigrig, from earlier in this thread for your knowledge.

Lowest I have hit after the initial loading phase is 40 FPS, normally sits around 50-60FPS (some pics with FRAPs enabled are below). I get the odd spike in Whiterun or when there's a snowstorm, but nothing turning the FXAA off can't fix (which can give an extra 5-10FPS depending on the area).

To be honest you shouldn't have any trouble running the game with either card, even with a 1gb version unless you want to use lots of Anti Aliasing, which isn't a neccessity because you can use FXAA.

570 1.2 GB owner here. The 570 will give your far better performance then the 6870. The 570 is equal to the 6970 in most games. That being said, the 2.5Gb 570 has issues. I did my research when bying this cards and at the price point, you'd be better off either with a 6970 or a 1.5GB gtx 580. Take a look at the video portion of the for sale section here.

That being said, again, I'm out of vram with the texture mods so I know 1.5GB vram won't cut it either if your looking to go crazy with the textures..

I've been working on making my version of Lightning from FF8 w/o using the facemask. It's close enough now I think.

As for selling your 295, I think I saw some on ebay starting bid $150 Buy now ~$190. I could be mistaken, though.

Thanks would you happen to know if thats the 1 gig version or the 3 gig?


I will ask him when I get a chance. I sent him a text.. .but he isn't the most responsive of people. Know a guy for 27 years, you think he'd answer his phone when you call.
