    It's for my girlfriend. :p She's insisting that I don't give her anything, so I'm helping her find some parts with her budget.

    not everyone needs the best in their machines :D

    OP: if u can get the price lowered a lil more (if second hand) then i think its a good deal still. A GTX295 can hang with a GTX470. but there are still lots of DX 11 cards in the $175-200 range.

    thats a good deal and has Dx11 too. Should be more than enough for the other half @1080P (if she games at that res)

    I see why she says that, 1. You buy your self all the kick ass hardware. 2. When you decide to get her something you get her a used card!!

    At list get her something new she'll appreciate you more even if it's not that powerful at list it will be new.

    I vote for the 560 TI

    No the price is no good and no dx11 there are lots (and i mean lots of them) of 40nm x11 cards similarly priced and brand new wich can offer that kind of performance.
