Not worth it. HD 6950 unlocked gives you GTX 480 performance.
Not worth it?

Well, GTX560Ti is $230,HD6950 is $290,and a GTX460 1GB is $189, all non-reference type btw.

Maybe a month ago. You might want to look those up again. The 6950 is now about the same as a 560.

Wrong.

GTX 460 is 115$ AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121390

HD 6950 is 215$ AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-361-_-Product

Anyone looking for HD 6950 Triple-CF for 645$.. now's the time.

Needless to say, that is the most powerful setup you can built right now, beside GTX 580 Tri-SLi, which costs 1,600$ and performs 10% better.

Question,is the 768MB version noticeably worse than the 1GB GTX460? 1GB GTX460's have a 256 bit bus vs. the 768mb with its 192 bit bus.
That HIS HD6950 has awful reviews on the Newegg site,but i guess it's worth it for the price.

If you were to go for a 6950, get a reference 2GB version. Also, I'd go for the 460 1GB if that's your choice.

Reviews on online stores usually comes from clueless people.

No, those reviews are just spammers.

GTX 460 1GB version! It's an awesome card and I'm sure you could get a used/open box of it for close to your budget somewhere around.

I disagree. As you can see from the image I posted, there is less than 5% difference in performance, even with Crysis @ 2560x1600 between 768MB and 1GB.

Furthermore, the 768MB version is only 115$, a steal!
