Sad part is that the folding scores aren't much better than a GTS 450... I think I'll sit this round out. :P

shoulda got a GTX295 and beaten both for like $220 :teehee:

Nah but in all seriousness these seem ok, Idk why I don't feel very excited about them. Odd that they use more power than the 6970 and 570 when overclocked

I'll make my final decision when I see the 6950 1GB vs it....

6950 is $50-100 more.

yeah but if the 6950 1GB performs similar, he'll have a case ;) (as they should be around the same price)

Yeah, I'm not too excited about the GTX 560 1GB's as I was about the GTX 460 1GB's. I think I'd rather get two HD 6950 1GB's unlocked to HD 6970's, in Crossfire, and overclocked (for the same price). Maybe if the GTX 560 1GB's were at the $200 mark, I'd be excited. I saw price drops to the GTX 460 1GB get to $140 after MIR's early this morning, but they're now at the $155 after MIR mark.

sadly I don't think the 6950 1GB is unlockable like the 2GB is, but the price point is still decent.
