Isn`t Gigabyte GTX 560 OC better than SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870?

A non TI version is CRAP, you will regret it in the end. I just linked above a nice MSI 560TI card!

I would opt for the TF2 as it's cooler is proven to be really really good. If you can't justify the premium then get the hawk linked above.

The only issue is the website he was searching lists them as a TI hawk but the sellers are posting non TI and different model numbers. He should search another website that ships to Poland
