Well,

Good card, it's just that the HD6950 2GB is really close in price...so it's a matter of personal choice.

I'd get a 560Ti Twinfrozr from MSI or a DirectcuII from ASUS...nice cards...

But in dual card configs, the Hd6950s often beat the 560TI...so it depends on your need (games and applications you deal with, your experience with drivers...)

I just bought two 2GB GTX560Ti s to check out:

Newegg.com - Palit NE5X56T01142-1041F GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Been using the to game at 5760 X 1080, both in 3d Vision and without. So far I'm very impressed with their performance, they're running my games very well. The 3d Vision Ready Games (Mafia2, Just Cause 2, Batman AA) are fast and look amazing in 1080P 3d.

A person doesn't have to get an ATi card for 2GB of RAM, and ATi has no 3GB cards like this one:

Newegg.com - Palit NE5X5800F10FB GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3072MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

I thought that dual 560's will beat a 580, but not by that much!!!
What a far cry from the sli/cf scaling from 3-4 years ago...

That's why, even tho I like my 5870 reference and I could buy another 5870 for Crossfire, I'd rather start fresh with either 2 X 560Ti or 2X Hd6950s...

Scaling is great since HD68** for AMD...
nVIDIA cards were already scaling good before, now it's even better...
