Hi Folks, Firstly, would like to say thanks to everyone for the help and advice I've gleaned by skulking around in the forums as a visitor so far. However, the time has come for me to step out of the dark and actually ask for your assistance. Here goes!..... Given the choice, which would be the prefered card?: MSI GTX560Ti Hawk 1Gb or MSI Radeon HD6950 2Gb I understand that both cards perform around the same mark (the Hawk slightly lower and performance at this level due mainly to the already aggressive factory OC). My consideration is more to do with which would provide greater future proofing? Would the 2Gb on the 6950 not serve me better in the long run? Surely it's only a matter of time before games demand 1Gb as minimum and 2Gb as standard? The other consideration is noise. I know the Hawk can be fairly intrusive when OC further still, but chances are I'll keep the card at it's stock settings for the main, so not too much of an issue. However, how does the 6950 compare? I can pick up either card for around the same price here in the UK (give or take a few £'s). So it really comes down to which is going to give the best value for money and provide the longest life in terms of future proofing. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. edit: It may also help to know I'll be running my PC via HDMI through my TV. Native res is (1280 x) 720p at present, but will be buying a new 1080p TV in the near future. I may run at higher res if it'll handle it, but native will probably be the standard setting used.
