gtx 570 versus 6970 versus 6950 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Save a few bucks and get a 6950. Mine is faster then both a GTX 570 and 6970, but I unlocked/overclocked it. Unless you plan on a 2560x1600 monitor in the future, save even more and get the 6950 1GB. Even if you do go 2560x1600 later, think Dual 6950 1GBs!

Considering at BEST you're going to get a 10% increase from the more expensive cards, here are the price increases from a HD 6950 1GB:
- HD 6970 42%
- GTX 570 35%
- HD 6950 2GB 12%
- HD 6950 1GB 0%

Best value is HD 6950 1GB by far IMO.

Best value is the 6950 but if you want the faster card get the 570. It's a tad faster than a 6970 at 1080p. You mentioned overclocking that's another reason to get the 570.
