Hidy ho, Forum! i'm a little confused by now
Yesterday i got 200$ for "free" (my best girl-friend who i usually help with PC stuff, and basically everything)
She gave me a 200$ Amazon Gift Card as my "christmas present" and literally told me: "I know that you'll buy something for your PC this christmas, so.. here"
I want to buy a nicer graphics card.. i'm even willing to spend the 200$ on a single graphics card but here's the situation:
1) I've done a LOT of research and i've realized that the HD 6870 is about 5 ~ 8% faster than the GTX 560 and they're the same price (180$)
2) The last time i used an AMD Graphics card was a really old Radeon 9550
and it wasn't bad at all, but i got used to Nvidia since the 8000 Series
3) I'm stuck between those 2 options, unless there's some kind of January sale and I could get a GTX 560Ti or an HD 6950 1GB for 200$
4) I'm stuck with Amazon! I know they don't have the best prices but hey, something is something, I can't buy in Newegg because I live outside the US.
Throw me a bone here, any HD 6870 or GTX 560 owners on the forum, please post your experiences
i don't want to make a mistake buying one or the other...
Thanks in advanced
