wouldnt you be better getting an Ati 6950 2gb than this 560 Ti?

The only thing putting me off buying the 6950 is the reference fan which looks noisier. I know it seems trivial but i want to build a good spec pc, but also one that's pretty much silent

both great cards it seems though looking at many forums/ benchmarks

Excellent price for this,but I bought the gigabyte soc version for 199 as mentioned by chevy cracking price.Also bought the nzxt 650 for 83.99 on the today only page.Thought it was a good deal for a 90% efficient psu.

6950 rev 1 unlocks guaranteed to 6970 speeds for free,

This is nowhere near competative.

Cooler is nice but an aftermarket cooler can easily be purchased if silence is essential. Besides the 6950\70 is silent except when being heavly stressed in which case you'll surely be playing a game at the same time and won't hear it.

It's a good price, it's just a very bad buying decision if spending this amount of money - as any GTX 560 would be a waste of money.
#7
would pick up a 480 for a tenner more and the 480 would monster this especially at high resolutions but none the less great price for what customPC class as the best of the 560, these babies overclock like no ones buisness and you will see some amazing clocks that can sometimes surpass a 570 and keep up with the 480/580 at lower resolutions, its only when the memory comes into play that they fall back

It is competitive the 560 is one hell of a card especially the MSI one its super quick when overclcoked. I personally would pick up a 480 for a tenner more and the 480 would monster this especially at high resolutions but none the less great price for what customPC class as the best of the 560's, these babies overclock like no ones buisness and you will see some amazing clocks that can sometimes surpass a 570 and keep up with the 480/580 at lower resolutions, its only when the memory comes into play that they fall back.

In no way is the 560 a bad buy as has been suggested its a fantastic card and is brand new out and very fast i think some people really don't have a clue about performance of these cards and you will always get fanboys of both Nvidia and AMD. Robo989 I think you should check this out as this is a head to head with the 2 cards and the 6850 does not win and don't forget that was a stock 560ti not the MSI one.

Doe these suffer from the same exploding problem as the 590 when overclocked on the provided on CD drivers? X)

errrr on the first few tests the results are <10fps which is within experimental error other than power consumption and the tiny tiny difference in pixel rate the Radeon beats it on the other tests so i'd say they're fairly evenly matched cards with the Radeon "winning" on stock on that review for sure and don't foget that Radeon was on stock so could easily be overclocked

£210 including delivery when I just clicked

Damnit I want this so badly... Not enough money at the moment though :(
Most of the way through upgrading my PC, just the graphics card and SSD to buy. But I won't be getting those until June :(

As long as it doesn't sound noisier you'll be alright then? ;)

great card. I chose the GTX560 over the AMD offering due to superior drivers and the fact that, when supported physx adds a lot to the eye candy, to me this added up to more than the few extra fps you get with a 6950 flashed to 6970 (I would say a stock 6950 is nip/tuck with the card posted by the OP at stock, game depending)......

the flash to 6970 is a good chance, but despite what others have said is NOT a 100% certainty

I did not go for the 480 due to insane energy usage, heat production and noise.

Each to their own however its about deciding what your priorities are and going for it..

Appears to be £191.99 on the today only page now... Maybe it was a misprice as it's normal price on Scan is £209.47
#16
back to normal price now, deal is over

A proper comparison\review and that's for the 1GB 6950. You can get the 2GB 6950 for £10 more than this card.

Unlocking a 6950 2GB card to 6970 increases performance by 15-20% roughly.

Anyways each to their own but I have to say that hwcomare site is silly. It comapres 3 games, if you switched 1 game the winner would change easily.

I am confused, how can this be competitive when the 6850 scores almost as highly as it http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html and can be had for £130 here? http://www.over clockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-241-AS&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=

ps
I had to put a space in there cos it censored the link, lol.
