    if u don't play over 1920x1080 than u will get more gpu power but the memory won't do that much.

    i upgraded from a MSI N460GTX HAWK to a EVGA GeForce GTX 570 and even in Team Fortress 2 i got over 120fps online with all on max in 1920x1080 before i had like 60fps xD

    At 1920x1080 the GTX560-Ti as already stated, will be the more sensible choice. What games do you play?

    Believe it or not. I just bought two of the Palit version of this card and just one offers a really great, smooth gameplay experience. I haven't even opened the box on the other. No need to. It offers an even better all round gameplay experience than the HD6950 it replaced. The HD6950 was overall faster, but ever so slightly micro-stuttered in certain playback situations. The 560 is smooth as glass everywhere.

    +1 on the 560 Ti. Plenty of performance for me, everything maxed @ 2048x1152 in all the games I've played, including Oblivion with massive texture packs.

    The best non-referenced GTX 560 is the Gigabyte GTX560 Ti SOC.

    I'd probably go with the MSI Twin Frozr II (or w/e it's called) or the Asus DirectCu II and do your own OC.

    I really regret buying a reference card lol

    If you can find an "open box" 570, then I'd get that, otherwise, the 560 would be fine. I got my 570 as an open box item for $185, and it was like new, been able to play everything maxed.
