ya i know that it is my decision but they are both very equally weighted in my books but maybe a little bit more towards the SSD

Then looks like you should get an SSD Does't seem like you need another 560Ti unless you can't play games

Is there any say on how much i would get for two 560ti twin frozr II if i was going to sell them when Kepler comes out? Also though i was thinking of getting a SSD, do u think it would be better to get an SSD or another 560?
For what it's worth, you can still put your 560Ti (plural if you get the second ) under water if you use universal blocks. Swiftech already has a SLI/CF bridge that will make it easier to link up the cards with those blocks. EK is on the verge of releasing new universal blocks with their own bridge as well.

As for deciding on an SSD or another 560Ti, if you're not happy with your gaming performance now go for the GPU; if you're not happy with your desktop's response then go for the SSD. If you can't decide which takes higher priority, flip a coin.

Ok everyone thanks so much for the help and to sum all of this up i think i have come to the conclusion that i will wait until kepler comes out to see what it can do. In the mean time i will get a SSD to speed up my everyday uses of my rig. and if need be i will keep my eyes open for a cheaper 560ti twin frozr II. if i did have to choose between a classy card and a HC2 card i dont know what i would get but it is not as much of a worry now because i know that they are both great cards and im sure that i would be happy with both! if u want let me know what you think of this!!!
