The 560 ti is a faster, cooler running card that pulls about the same power as the 6870. Is it worth the $30? Up to you, but the card is a very good buy (this coming from someone who sways toward ATI). If they priced it at $200, like the 6870, Nvidia would have a huge amount of sales. The downside to the card is that it's unlikely to scale as well as the 6870 when running in tandem with another card. But, the card itself is plenty powerful to run modern games. Maybe not full gore settings, but far from looking like Minecraft, either.

I'd suggest getting either a 6870/560ti/6950 1GB (6870 if you plan on xfire later on) or a 5870/470/480. You could possibly also consider a 460 sli however since your mobo would only run them @ 4x 4x it may not be as worthwhile.

He says he is looking for a fairly quiet video card, the gtx470 and 480 do not qualify under that

I've bought a GIGABYTE 470SO, it's really quite with its Windforce cooler, and it has a vapor chamber device, so the temperature is really low, and it's really really quite, even I tweak the fan speed to 100%, it's too quite to hear some noise from it.

The 6870 will be around 10% slower than a stock 560TI across all resolutions.

I would say HD6870 is a great card but this XFX HD6950 1GB is only $205 after mail-in rebate and with free shipping ($5 more than OP's budget and I think OP can squeeze $5 more from his wallet).

What's your resolution? Because there is no can at $200 that can max Crysis warhead at 1920 by 1080 and run 60 FPS. Not even the GTX 580 can. I recommend the 6950 deal posted above for $205, with a slight overclock or if you can unlock it, you will be able to max Warhead at 60FPS or more at gamer settings.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. A thing about Newegg is I live in CA so I'd have to pay tax which would be an additional $20-30. So I'd have to take this into consideration when selecting one off Newegg.

I'm able to get a HIS 6870 for $170 (brand new ebay). Should I just go with this deal or fork up some extra cash and go with a MSI Twin Frozr II 560Ti for $230 AR (Amazon)?
