as you can see from my sig rig I have a gtx 560. I was suppose to buy one at first then SLI it to replace my 6870 (they can't fold for peanuts) but after I've read the reviews I found out that 560's don't scale pretty good although scaling on heaven 2.1 was really impressive but aside from that 6870CF beats it in almost all games. now I'm getting 470 SLI instead to replace my 6870 twins.

6000 series turned the table toward corssfire... The scaling is just ridiculously good, and in most games I have seen the scaling is +95% . even a 6850 crossfire would beat 560 SLI . So, by all means go with 6950CF, as it just crushes 560 sli.

Interesting. I stand corrected. Anyone have a good bench of these multi card setups for reference?

Could you please post a link to an independent review site that backs your assertions?

GTX560s scale very well in games.

A mildly overclocked 6870 is as fast as a 560. They 6x do scale better than the NVIDIA cards, but generally Anandtech's reviews are the best and they haven't done a GTX 560 SLI review yet.

On the page you link to the GTX560 mainly beats the OCd 6870, sometimes by a lot. How is that "as fast"?

XBit Labs does good reviews as well. They test a lot of games, and they post convenient graphs at the end of the review:

Summing everything up, we can conclude that Nvidia’s new mainstream solution turned out a great success. Due to its outstanding features and a price tag of only $10 more than the price of AMD Radeon HD 6870, it rips its competitor to shreds.

Most of those games are optamized for NVIDIA cards. The 6870 doesn't do bad and in most cases can keep up.

If you look up top there's a member who's gone from a 560 to a 6870 and he said the 6870's are better.

Your forgetting that most of the members here are also talking about the cards in crossfire not just single card performance. The 6XXX series cards do scale amazingly well, I had 2 6870s prior to my 570 and they were impressive for midrange cards.

OP the 6950s would be the better option, although slightly more in price the performance will make up for it. Just be aware though some members here are getting newer pcb's some without the dual bios and backplates. I think youll be fine though as long as your not counting on them to unlock.
