My System Specs


560 and 6870 are pretty much the same performance wise (except the games that play better with one or the other). Power consumption is close, but probably a bit in favour of the 6870. Price is better on 6870. Drivers are (according to others), better on 560. That's pretty much the summary of the 2 cards. Just have to decide what small factors are important to you.
