Err... the 6950 1GB vs the 2GB isnt that much of a difference in performance really, unless you play at an insane eyefinity res... so i don't see why it should be lower then the 560Ti

well,depending on the game and the resolution we have :

AMD Radeon HD 6950 1 GB Review - Page 22/26 | techPowerUp

basically the 560 takes the 6950 at or below 1920x1080. at which point they kinda
level out,afterwards its all 6950 territory.

so,when you cranck it up high?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Review

6950 all the way,usually :)






edit : although it seems 560's clock well. so,at stock,and high rez+eye candy go for the 6950



if you want to try clocking, then maybe try the 560. but it aint guaranteed :D


edit :

one more linkie : PowerColor HD6950 1 GB: Alternative Arithmetic or


so...6950 for the win!

I would consider the Asrock Pro3 for the motherboard over the MSI G43. Don't go over 4.0 mhz. Neither a low-end motherboard nor a stock cooler can handle it.

Why not scrap overclocking, settle for a dual core i3 2100 with H67 board and cheaper 1,333hz? For gaming, this build with a solid $200+ monitor and 6950 2GB will be a batter gaming machine. Performance is on par with previous 1156 i5 750 minus multi threaded applications.

Okay so I have decided I will buy whichever card is cheapest before MIR when the time comes.

As for the Mobo its reviews really arent that bad apparently it give quite a nice OC has anyone found anything to the contrary?

thats the spirit!!!

with a k cpu you basically need the mobo to have decent circuitry and a bios that allows you to pop that multi up...
and thats it...the rest,layout,whatever,dont matter...:)
