The 560 is better, but like you said also consumes more power. Only you can decide which is right for your system.

Unless you plan to upgrade your gaming res anytime soon you're not going to see any noticeable difference from one or the other, though between the 560 and the 6850 I 'd definitely go with the gtx 560.

Yeah, i thought so myself... still, this monitor is old, and for basically the same price the 560Ti would allow for more future proofing. I posted a thread with my system and on the PSU forums, if the one i have in mind is enough, i'll have some real thinking to do... the 560Ti looks like a good, no, great deal.

560ti would be your best choice. Outperforms the 6850 and even the 6870 in some cases.

Also, the 560Ti might be way too overkill with my cpu... Hell, even the 6850 is overkill with this cpu, let alone at 1280x1024.
HOWEVER, i mean, the price is essentially the same, so even if it's overkill i mean... why not right? I wasn't planning on upgrading my gpu, but i am... i might end up upgrading other parts sooner than later.

Guy, work on the rest of your system first. A 6850 would destroy 1280x1024, but you are pretty limited with that CPU.

Thing is, the GPU is priority because the other one is dead, and i do need one. I might upgrade the rest later when i have the cash, but right now the gpu is queen. I Would upgrade the cpu, but my psu is dodgy, and that'll take priority. Besides, destroying is good

Ok, i made up my mind, i'm going with the 6850. It's more than enough at my res, it's cheaper, and it's ATI! Thanks everyone!
