Keep which? asus 6950 2gb or MSI 570gtx - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Personally I'd keep the 6950 because the $40 will just be like you paying $40 more for the 570. Your choice though both are great cards and if you unlock the 6950 that's even better.

Found that deal right here, it was posted and linked from Newegg275$ free Shipping and no Rebates!

I would eventually like to buy a Dell U2711 for high screen resolution gaming so the xfire will come in handy,

I do not have enough rep to post in for SALEs section but I will sell the 570 for exactly 275$ plus you pay for shipping cost. Its such a great deal I would rather transfer it to an OCN member rather then return for a refund.

Except from when you crank up the res and/or go crossfire/SLI. Then the cheaper 6950 wins easily.

so what would you guys do?

1) keep the asus 6950 and dont accept the 570gtx so they give me the full refund on the 570

2) Use the 570gtx, rma the 6950 2gb and suck on the 40$ restocking fee.

Planning on Heavy gaming on Battlefield3/ Diablo 3/ Eve Online/ Starcraft 2 1920x 1200 for now, Would like a IPS panel maybe for christmas
I would say keep the hd6950 2gb & unlock it to a hd6970,

Deffinitly keep the 6950 and unclock it. It will outperform the 570.

Hmmm i too would say to keep the 6950 cause of its OC potential,570 is a bit better at stock but still has some bad VRMs.

To OP: Keep the 6950 2GB, it's better than the 570 @ high res. U could unlock it and then some OC, it will be a beast. U will end up losing money since u have to eat $40 restocking fee n the shipping fee to ship it back to NE.

Care to show proof that the 570 is faster by a pretty decent margin? Oh nvm, i don't really care because i know who u are from all the threads about Nvidia .

6950.
Both cards are about the same speed in games but the 6950 has more VRAM and can be unlocked. Its also a tad cooler iirc.

I agree. If he bothered to look at more than the blatantly Nvidia biased benches he would know that the 570 is almost identical to the 6950 overall. The 570 pulls ahead here and there, but then again, the 6950 outruns the 570 sometimes too.

Only reasons I say keep the 6950 is bc it has 2GB and the VRM issue with the 570. Also if u have a switch on the 6950 you could flash it to 6970. I mean there is nothing wrong with keeping both and using in another rig or something....
