I'm actually looking at graphics cards in this price range but can't decide. I've come up with a few possibilities:
- CF 6850s (~$320 AR)
- Reference GTX 570 (~$320 AR)
- 6950 Twin Frozr III ($285 AR)
- Reference 6970 (~$320 AR)

The 6850s will perform the best out of the bunch, but will consume the most power.

I think that GIGABYTE's 6950OC will be better than MSI's 6950 Twin Frozr III, GA's one is a little cheaper and it's an OC version, so it can OC to higher core and memory clock, of course will get higher performance.
