Depends upon whether you'll ever want to run 3 screens or more. 3+ screens = 6950 2gb.

They both perform about the same, the GTX 560 has Physics while the 6950 has 2GB of RAM which could become useful at high resolution/details, especially in Xfire.

So my vote goes for the 6950. Some say it can be flashed to 6970, which if it works is pretty cool.

If your planning on a dual gpu set up, the 6950's will perform better.

Its not really that they scale "bad," but in comparison to the 6xxx series they dont scale nearly as well. The 6xxx cards xfire scaling is REALLY good.
