    Maybe save up a little more money first, and wait until the gtx 660 is released.

    This ^
    Otherwise some OC 6850 (just below 600 PLN) or 6870 (650-700 PLN). 560 Ti is no less than 800 PLN for now

    Just wait for a month or two and save up for the 660/660Ti/670

    Your current board will do crossfire but not SLI. If you will be keeping this board a while longer I would say to pickup a 6850/6870 as you can always pickup another later for crossfire- 68xx series cards scale very well in crossfire.

    From your other thread, if you can bring up your budget just a touch more opt for a 560Ti. Out of those depicted I would go for the Gigabyte 6870.

    @Norton

    With a small hack that board could do SLI. Rather moot though, because if the OP has been running a 260 any of the cards mentioned will be quite a bump.

    Please, post here you opinion. Sapphire is cheaper a bit.

    I would go with the Sapphire especially if the Gigabyte is the 3 fan model- that Gigabyte is much larger than it needs to be :shadedshu

    Go with whatever you want there's no much difference maybe Gigabyte is a bit cooler but both have good coolers.

    Now that I am thinking of it if you wanted to be stupid cheap ..... LOL Stupid cheap meaning, you would have to find a second card and an SLI bridge for like $60 USD max to make it worth your while.

    6870 is faster and more power efficient than gtx 560 non ti so i say 6870.

    Could someone provide link with tests for this card?

    Is it worth to go with this Palit? This Palit has been used abt 1 year.

    Pretty sure it's this one

    I ask the same as well. May want to pm brandonwh64, I know he likes his but he could probably give you some numbers to measure its performance for you. Pretty sure performance wise it's between a 6870 & 6950.
