I'd say depends on your resolution.

At 1920x1080 the 2gb will help
At 1680x1050. the 560ti will be cheaper and will not be much different then the 6950.

That's my guess anyway, i'm sure others will chime in.

Keep in mind your CPU needs to be accounted if you are thinking on running Ultra Its Taxing one would say :)

Myself I would pick the 6950 but I am a fan boy for them

Green team less big dips in fps in my experience thats why I am all green now I loved and cards till I started playing crysis years ago and went green cause my dips were much less and then I found it never has huge dips like red team I never get a stutter out of my green cards where no matter what I do I can always get my red teams to stutter at some point no matter what version I buy so I turned to the dark side lol my vote is the 560ti and make sure u grab the 560ti 448 core it kicks butt I just picked up 2 and a 3rd is on it way but it's only an oc version the 448 comes close to my 480's performance so there great cards I think

This. I got a Twin Frzr 560Ti 448 that I OC'ed and well... it kicks major ass for the price.

I am looking into a second one also, even if I said I would not go SLI again, the gains are just too good.

when I was using a single 6950 2gb at 1080p, I had everything maxed except only 2x MSAA, highest is 4x, and no motion blur which I hate anyway

with v-sync I would get lots of 50-60fps, in tanks it would drop to 30-40fps in certain maps and certain places, overall pretty good, and I never bothered to OC it, the OC would maybe give 3-4fps more at the lowest points

Oh. My. God. Please use SOME punctuation at least, PLEASE!


A higher resolution gameplay will benefit from more vmem, regardless of "team."
