If OP plans on getting a new monitor in the relative near future something like the 2GB 6950 or a 1.28GB GTX 570 might not be a bad idea.
I haven't seen any good deals since I brought this card. Wanted to the upgrade this weekend. Thinking I'll stick with what I have and keep looking for a open box/cheaper 560ti and I'll sli it later. I do plan to get a 24 monitor next month. I just wanted to upgrade my video card first.
The 2gig 6950 are closer to the 300 dollar price than they are to the 200 one. I actually started out looking for something closer to 100 and realized I wasn't going to get much for my money at that price point (460 gtx). So I decided to stick with the 560ti after you guys warned me about the normal 560.
When I get my second 560ti depends on when newegg has one open box.
