I'm looking at getting a new card this friday. I'm currently looking at the MSI R6950, priced at 299. But, if anyone knows a much better deal, please suggest. My mobo doesn't have an extra slot for crossfire. So I need the best I can get for 300. I want a black and blue card since it's a black and blue build. Or just a black card. Thanks guys.

Personally I think the best 560 Ti would be the MSI version, mainly because I was able to get it to heavily overclock (1GHz core)

I own a toxic 6950 and recently owned a MSI 560ti twin frozr III and I can tell you both are fantastic cards. Since the toxic is no longer available definitely go with the 560ti TFIII

- SAPPHIRE 100311-2SR Radeon HD 6970 2GB = $ 300.00 after MIR
- MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III PE/OC Radeon HD 6950 2GB = $ 280.00 after MIR
- EVGA 02G-P3-1568-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB = $ 270.00 after MIR
- MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB = $ 250.00 after MIR

Ya for $300 the Sapphire 6970 would be the best choice.

im thinking that a 6950 that unlocks would beat any 560ti under 300 bucks

It gets a "Qualified*" YES, as it has the DUAL BIOS Switch on the card. It's Cheaper at NewEgg too btw Sapphire DIRT3 Edition @ $245 after MIR, BUT ... *read my Post #28 - http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/111...locking-3.html meaning the chance at it Un-Lock has gone from FAIR to SLIM to NONE almost now.

If the Toxics don't ever come back the Sapphire 6970 looks like a pretty sweet deal and also can I CF it with my Toxic without any issues even though mine is locked?
