560 Ti or 6950 ?
HIS H695F2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB
$275, $255 after rebate

GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560
$250, $230 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...067296&SID=

The 560 seems better than the 6950, but if the 6950 can be unlocked to 6970 that seems to be a much better deal. So, would I definitely be able to unlock the 6950 to the full performance of the 6970 thus making it a better deal?

Am I missing anything?

Thanks

The 6950 has 2g of built in Ram which helps put it ahead not to mention the ability to unlock it. I have not unlocked one myself but from what I have read its very easy with a very high success rate. Just do some reading

GTX 560

Pros:
CUDA and Physx
Quieter and Cooler
Less power
Overclock

Cons:
Slightly slower than 6950

6950

Pros:
Slightly faster than GTX 560
Easily upgradable to outperform the gtx 560
Cross fire two unlocked 6950 is unmatched in price/performance.

Cons:
Slightly louder, warmer and consumers more power.

Both are very similar, but get the GTX 560 if you want features such as CUDA and Physx. Get the 6950 and unlocked it if you want raw performance. In my opinion: the difference between the heat, noise, and power consumption between these two cards are negligible.

The 6950 actually consumes less power than the 560 Ti. Just is louder and hotter.

Also, if noise or hear is an issue, you can always install an after-market cooler on it.

Thanks to all of you! I think I will go for the HIS 6950 and attempt to unlock it.
