I'm currently building a gaming machine and have been torn between the 5870 and the 6950. There are two cards in particular that I have narrowed down to.

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100290SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card - 5870

Newegg.com - XFX HD-695X-CNFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity - 6950

I've often seen people compare the two, except that the 6950 had 2gb and the 5870 did not. This 5870 does, however. The price is a mere $5 difference, so that's irrelevant.

Anyone have any input on which card would be better?

Would you say the performance should be about equal by the stats alone, or counting the morphological anti-aliasing? Either way, I'll probably get the 6950 now, so thanks for the help!
