560GTX-TI vs. HD 6870

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i was checking some hardware and prices for a friend and i found that radeon for like 50 bugs less than the geforce one?
According to this http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rd,2857-7.html
they should be on about the same level.
im sorry not much into the radeon vs geforce stuff... but which card would you recommend?

I'd say 560 is better overall, but hey, if you can get the 6870 for 50 bucks less, go for it.

I prefer the 6870 to the 560 if you can get the 6870 for more then $20 less.

If you have a 460 now you wont notice much improvement going to a 6870. Maybe try and find a sale on a 6950 2gb.

6870s dont overclock very well at all I know I had 2 of them. I vote for the 560 because with a good OC it will match a 570.

They really don't. With a stock clock of like 900mhz, overclockability is very limited. When I had mine, I had it up to 940mhz on stock volts. Anything over that and it would crash.
