Default GTX 560 vs 6870

I have really been looking at getting a GTX 560 but just saw some review that shows that 6870 to be faster. I don't know how reliable that is. Anyone care to lead me in the right direction that shows me otherwise? Thanks.

560Ti or 560?

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Review: Take Off Your Ti : Meet The GeForce GTX 560

Ti is leaps and bounds ahead of the 6870, regular 560 is not.

Just the 560 and I am not a gamer. I will be using it for video editing with Vegas Pro 11.

I'm getting 2 of the 6870 to crossfire because it is about $110 cheaper ($340 after rebate) and really close to the 560 Ti SLI which is $450. I don't want to waste $110 more for a slight performance increase. All the info I got was from

I think after talking to some people they may have talked me into getting the 460 for a much cheaper price. The performance gain of the 560 is minimal compared to this one.
