Read this conclusion from Benchmark Reviews.com on MSI GTX 560ti.

Quick paste from conclusion "If NVIDIA was accurate in pricing the GeForce GTX 560 Titanium at the $250 price point, they've done well to attack a hole in the market. Heading into February 2011, the ATI Radeon HD 5870 still sells for $280 at its best while the AMD Radeon HD 6950 sells for $300. Since the GeForce GTX 560 Ti often compete with both of these cards in terms of FPS performance, this could be the GTX 460 all over again for mid-range bargain shoppers. As soon as online prices are posted, we'll update this article with links.

In summary, the GF114 GPU inside the GTX 560 Titanium is the perfect replacement for the now end-of-life GTX 470. Because this product is named similarly to the GTX 460 from the previous generation, consumers might think that this is a mainstream graphics card. Considering the price and performance, it's safer to consider the GTX 560 series as a solid part of the upper midrange market segment and allow the upcoming GeForce GTS 550 to prove itself worthy of mainstream praise and prices. Still, by matching performance with the more expensive options, it won't be long before the GeForce GTX 560 Ti does one of two things: become a sought-after $250 product or have the price increased to match the competition."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In my own opinion you can't go really wrong with either AMD 6950 or GTX 560ti they both compete well with each other. AMD 6950 does better but at a slightly higher price pont. Make your own decision based on your budget or needs. Below are some benchmarks to compare. You can find other reviews from other sites as well.

AMD’s GTX 560 Ti Counter-Offensive: Radeon HD 6950 1GB & XFX’s Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition

Should give you a second look and view.
