The AMD Radeon HD 6950 is undoubtedly one of the best GPUs on the market. With a core clock speed of 800MHz, 1408 Stream Processors, and a price tag of around $269.99 this thing is a must have in your system.
Not only does this GPU have some pretty impressive specs, but it is also CrossFireX ready. Let’s see some comparisons with Crysis: Warhead at 1920×1080.
