560 1GHZ or 6950 Unlock CERTAIN GAMES?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Which card? 560 1GHZ or 6950 Unlock? It's between the MSI 6950 2GB Reference ($275, $25 rebate) or MSI Twin Frozr 2 ($245, $20 Rebate)/ Twin Frozr 3 ($265).

Games:
Battlefield Bad Company 2
Battlefield 3
Rage
Bioshock Infinite
Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City
Assassins Creed 1/2
Assassins Creed Brotherhood
Crysis
Dirt?

Yes I've looked at all the reviews. Some say 560 dominates all of the AMD cards while others say 6950 [70] should be in its rightful place. What I want to know is what would be the better card in the games listed above. Any input is very appreciated. And I apologize for ANOTHER 560 vs. 6950 thred but I hope since this is more detailed and personalized that everyone's input would be better used. Thanks!

The Batman games support Physx, if that matters to you.

6950 without doubt.

560 not got the balls a 6950 has in crysis,plus more vram for future games should they need it or maybe multi screen upgrade down the road.

Get the 6950. I had that same exact card before getting my 6870 crossfire to work with OS X. It was an amazing card. It unlocked to 6970 speeds and beyond on stock voltages and it literally raped any game I threw at it. You will love it; buy it and don't look back, 560 doesn't even stand a fighting chance.

Batman isn't the hugest deal, I've been just wanting to try them out since they seem to be well liked games.

I would say Battlefield is my most played game. But I'm REALLY excited for Rage, Battlefield 3, and Bioshock Infinite.

i'd go for 6970 crossfire or a 6990 for the games above.

I'm honestly not sure why people keep comparing the 560 to the 6950. Especially when the shaders are unlocked, the 6950 screams. On water my GTX 470 (supposedly comparable to a GTX 560) struggled to break 20k GPU in vantage, on stock cooling, not breaking a sweat my 6950 with unlocked shaders does 25k gpu score.
Meh >.<

They are compared because of the similar prices. The 6950 is the way to go IMO.
