6870 OC CF vs. GTX 560 Ti - Page 3

post #21 of 25
MSI Geforce GTX 560 Ti OC $249.99

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC $259.99

MSI AMD 6870 Hawk Radeon $249.99

The GTX 560 Ti is a bit more powerful but not by much on the AMD Hawk. Read up and go with what you think is best. To be honest you can't go wrong. Choosing between these two cards will be like trying to pick out which apple is more red out of a barrel when both taste just as good.

Before I upgraded I had the MSI AMD 6870 Twin Frozr II card. Great card actually.

I've heard great things about the Hawks on overclocking. Since you not going to overclock it don't matter that much. The cards I chose are already overclocked and it's why I chose them as a good choice for you. Either one really one saves you $10.

Currently on Newegg anyway, the EVGA GTX 560 TI OC is sold out do being very popular in demand. If you don't have good cooling or space in your case I'd go with EVGA since it's air flow is out the back flow bracket as opposed dispersing inside your case. It doesn't make any difference if you have sufficient air cooling but it can if it's cramped and don't.

Thanks for recommendations, guys. I'll probably pick GTX 560 Ti, but last question. I've heard that Radeons working faster/better optimized with AMD processors. Is that true? If yes, then maybe I'll gain some little more performance with 6870 vs GTX 560 Ti?

I have 2 additional fans installed in case, so shouldn't be a problem.

GTX 560 TI competes with HD 6950 and not 6870 amirite ?
GTX 560 TI SLI vs. HD 6870 CF I would definitely take two GTX 560s. You know, you can get the Gigabyte SOC version for not a lot more than a ref card and those are as fast as GTX 570's. But if you compared GTX 560 TI SLI with HD 6950 CF then maybe I would lean more towards AMD, especially if you could trick him into unlocking them tongue.gif

I'm taking GTX560Ti. smile.gif I was an Intel/ATI user in the past, now it's time to switch for a while. tongue.gif Btw any problems with drivers? I had FX5200 long time ago and always had probs with games with different drivers. On one drivers one game ran just fine, on another same game just doesn't work and vice versa for other games - never experienced such with ATI. That really pissed me off. So, situation is changed in this time or I still need keep bunch of drivers for every game to work?

Ahaha. Free Just Cause 2 coupon w/ purchase! Why I just didn't wait! I already bought it recently (you may check my cursing thread) AND because of JC2 horrible performance I'm getting dedicated vid. Ah well, they doesn't ship outside of US anyway.
