HD 6950 vs gigabyte GTX 560 ti

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I will be playing at 1920x1200 res. I want to know which one of these are more silent (load), better quality, not as hot, longer lasting and problem free.

I already know that by performance they are almost the same etc. I want to hear all the good/bad things from owners of any of these cards.

also I wanna know what is the difference between HD 6950 club 3d, sapphire or gigabyte.

Thanks to all in advance!

Make sure it's a reference 2gb model. Otherwise, no unlock.

*IF* you're unlocking a 6950 to 6970, then... it wins hands down against a 560, especially at higher resolutions.
