Should I get a 6950 advice me.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just got an XFX 5870 4 days ago that I bought on ebay for $210 with transferable warranty (haven't registered it yet).

But, I just saw that tigerdirect has the XFX 6950 for 290 - 10 rebate - 17.24 % CB from the add it up program, so it'll end up costing me $270 w/ shipping.

I do want to try eye infiity, but by the time I have money to buy 2 more monitors there will probably be a new amd video card series and a price decrease.

So talk me out of buying it and selling my 5870 I just got.

not much difference between the 2 to be honest , but 6950 is still ontop . And you can unlock the shaders which yields in extra performance.. better than a 5870 anyways .

actually 5870's performance equals to 6950 in DX10, but 6950 still has its advantage like DX11's performance, 2GB memory, multiple screens technique assistance etc, so go for 6950 will be the better choice, I've bought a GIGABYTE's 6950, it's a nice card indeed.
