Default Graphic Card for 3ds max, maya and gaming!

Hi guyz, i want to buy a decent gpu card which play games on hi-res and help me in 3ds max and maya viewport performance.... fast rendering is not needed just want to work with heavy scenes and particle system.

my pc config:
Processor : amd X4 965 quad core
RAM :4 gb ram
Motherboard: asus m3a78-em
Zebronics bijli2 cabinet.

gpu card which can work smooth in 3dsmax n Maya viewport and run games like hell..

Right now i have this msi card in my mind R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC 2GB
and some says it work good in 3ds max n maya and it can play games too.

ngtx 560 ti twin frozer 2 it better than this and also have cuda in it but it doesn't work good in cad application.....

So, please tell what u guyz think should i get this card or not........????

6950 > GTX560

Although if you can wait a month or so, GTX570 prices will drop too making it equally affordable.

But you haven't told us- Which SMPS do you have? Both of those cards are very very high powered cards, you will have to buy a good SMPS/PSU to go with it.

nVidia is the best answer for your question Geforce 5xx series currently the best shot for you. You'll miss out on CUDA if you buy ATi card.

It will surely drop, GTX580 price has already been sliced and it will reflect in India soon enough. That will affect the prices of the GTX570 too.

EDIT: It is rumoured to drop to 17k.

guyz please research abt gtx 560 ti 2gb by MSI, it is not campatible with cad application n very lagg in viewport even with very small object..

please tell me if u r sure abt any card, i'm really confused rite now.............
i know nvidia will be better when it comes to cuda but what if it doesn't work well and the same problem exists in gtx 570 and its not even 2gb and sm say if wanna use gpu card for cad u have to buy 2gb VRAM.

if u use heavy scenes in 3ds max n maya then please tell me which card do u have..........

I m sure you know that Geforce(or even Radeon) series of GFX cards is not officially supported by 3ds Max or Maya then you may have to buy a Quadro series card(official support for 3ds Max/Maya) but then you may not get the desired performance for gaming with it. Other was is to buy Geforce 400 series card but again it has bad points. last option is to go with a Radeon card but will miss CUDA, although CUDA is not used by many renderers there is one called Arion(by Random Control) which utilizes CUDA, its in early days and has a very good potential of becoming a mainstream renderer.

Check it out here:
