Build me a computer for EXACTLY no more than 915$ - Page 3

post #21 of 30
Theres little to justify dropping cash on a 6970 right now IMO given the impressive near perfect unlock rate of Ref 6950 2GB cards. Don't Xfire 6800 series, you will regreat the price/performance compared to 6950 unlock. And a 6990 is useless for anyone who doesn't want to tri/quadfire IMO as Xfire 6950's will be significantly cheaper, with little to no extra drawbacks.

I've been pushing the 6950 2GB Ref so hard lately AMD should start pay me as an advertiser... But seriously though, its hard to deny the sheer force of the 6950 right now, nothing comes close to that kind of price/performance on the market IMO.

Even if I was 100% Pro nVidia and Anti-AMD I would have to either suck it up and suggest the 6950 anyways, or simply keep my mouth shut about GPU's near this price range.

Of coarse there are exceptions, like those who want a single card solution that offers PhysX or something... But in most cases, the 6950 is pure gold.

Read all the posts and love the builds (even the Sb one ) but im looking for an AMD build hence me putting this in the AMD forum, i have decided to go with the 6950 2gb and UL it to a 6970, but the one im getting is on newegg and its this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161355
But is there a way i can peel off that bright blue sticker? lol, kinda dumb but i really would like this card more if there wasnt some baby blue bubbles on it.

I disagree. Sure, the Radeon HD 6950 2GB is a great card for the money right now, but it's not the holy grail or anything when it comes to bang-for-buck. Unlocking the shaders will give you 3% more performance. Big whoop! Over-cloking is decent, but I feel the GTX 560 Ti is better for the price. Stock, it's 5% slower than the Radeon HD 6950 2GB, but it also costs 10% less. Over-clocked, any reference card can get to 950/1900/4600MHz Core/Shaders/Memory and, at that speed, it's the same speed as a reference GTX 570. When over-clocked and unlocked, the Radeon HD 6950 2GB is the same speed as a 6970 2GB. Of course, the GTX 570 and 6970 trade blows at 1920x1200, so OC Radeon HD 6950 2GB= OC GTX 560 Ti. Given that the 560 performs the same and costs less, I think it's better bang-for-buck. That's without mentioning folding, of course. The 6950 simply doesn't stand a chance in that, and a GTX 560 Ti at those clocks is within 5% of a GTX 580 when it comes to PPD.

Only the last sentences were in reference to folding; the rest were in reference to gaming. Also, there IS a point in folding. Unlike you, I'd actually want to see cures for things like cancer. If you don't want to help, don't. Just don't try to diminish its importance to people that do.

I think what he's trying to say is he doesn't fold for him, he folds for those with incurable diseases...

Oh well, in any case, the SLi/Crossfire build will be the better choice for the price.
The GTX 590 and HD 6990 is no way bang for the buck, and he'll end up wasting $100 or likewise.
