Thank you for the advice everyone, I really appreciate it!

So I've decided on getting a GTX 560, I'm looking at the EVGA model, mainly because I've had them for years and they've always performed well and have a great warranty. The Gigabyte and the MSI seem to be better however but I'm hesitant to buy a graphics card from them.

So it's down to these 3 I guess.

The 6000 series were just a gap filler while they work on the 7000 series which IS a completely new core design....

Everyones known that from the start...

Gigabyte has a GTX 560 Ti factory overclocked to 1GHz, but it's out of stock on Newegg.

Yeah, I was hoping for the OC'd edition, but if it's not in stock in the next couple of weeks I think I'm going to go ahead with the Gigabyte one anyways for a little higher clocks.

They seemed pretty equal to me when I went 560. 6870's louder, but produces less heat due to lower power consumption. 560's IQ seemed much better to me than 6870 due to flickering textures and dodgy AA. 560 clocks quite a bit better too.
