  1. So as the title implies I want to upgrade my gpu, I need advice on whether I should go with a radeon 6950 or maybe stick with Nvidia and get like a gtx570?

    Much thanks.

    if you need to know which one is better ,surely the GTX 570 is better than HD 6950,

    but the 570 is like $100 more so 6950 is better value and only a slight performance sacrifice

    If you do some research you may be able to get a 6950 which unlocks into a 6970... which is pretty much same performance-wise as a GTX 570.
