Also this is the reply to the post about 6xxx series being only rebranding :P

 

:doh:

 

If you had bothered to read carefully, I only said 6770. The 6750 and 6770 are only going to be rebadged versions of the 5750 and 5770 to reflect the brand name change.

I have decided to get a cheap 5450 instead for 2.5k, as I'm expecting a significant drop in price of 460GTX maybe around 8k after a month or two once 560GTX arrives here. .

 

I'll keep this card as a backup then , always wanted to have backup card since my mobo doesn't have integrated graphics.

 

Plus I can finally force myself to play Dues Ex Collection now. :P

Dont buy a 5450, its a total waste of time.

 

Look around on TE, Erodov and over here. I am sure you can get a decent used GPU for about 3k. Something with a year or so warranty remaining.

Is it really that bad a backup card as I'll be getting 460GTX or 6850 after a month or two , just needed a GPU urgently so that PC can run atlest.

 

Can't find any good GPU for cheap on any forum. :(

So whats the best vfm card now. 560 or 6950?

W/e you can find a better deal on but 560 hasnt been launched in India yet. Also IIRC 6950 is a bit better than 560 on stock frequencies and 560 has slightly more overclocking potential. But since both these cards are new they are fairly expenssive- depending on your cpu i would go for gtx 460 - its been out for a bit now and you can find great deals on it if you search. I have even seen some for 9k for 1gb version. If you are building a new rig with sandy bridge i would go for 560/6950 since 460 will bottle neck a sandy bridge.

6850 @ 10k gives a tad bit better performance

 

That's debatable. It more or less boils down to the game you're playing. Besides Nvidia's got better driver support.
