Okay...Lookin' on NewEgg & I see...

Mushkin 120gb ssd ($220)
Revo Drive 120gb ssd ($310)

You had recommended the GTX 580...Stating that the GTX 570 or 560ti (thinkin' Twin Frozr II or Gigabyte SOC), would you consider the GTX 570 & use that extra $100 towards the Revo Drive?

The best single GPU period is the GTX 500 series, dont even bother with ATI its not even worth it, just spend a little bit more and go with a card that benches better, in all aspects

He asked for the best gpu for his res.. The 580 would fit that title. Sure it may be a bit much but it's what he asked for.

Yes, I would do that. The 570 will definitely get the job done with your monitor.

I do not want this to become a GPU FANBOI WAR! Both gpu vendors are good...period. I can care less about benching. My love is OC'ing CPUs, GPUs, and memory.

SO PLEASE!!! Do not start explaining why this gpu is better than the other. I'm interested in a gpu that will satisfy my needs for gaming @ high settings for the resolution I had mentioned. I am upgrading from a 9800 GTX+ 1gb. I am aware that the GTX 580/570 can handle that resolution with ease BUT if I am going to buy a 560ti or 6850, I really need to know if I can get my high settings with the most fps for games like Crysis, Metro 2033, and for other games that are similar

Get HD 6850 1GB video card for ~170 after rebates. This will do it for your size monitor. Later you can get another in XFire to keep you going.....

i get near 40 fps in crysis warhead@1600x1200 with very high settings and 4x aa...so its obvious that gtx 560/hd6950 will handle all games at 1600x900 with ease..

a 560 will certainly do the job for all your games, especially with ur monitor. if you dont plan on getting a 2nd monitor anytime soon get a 560 and get the revodrive.

560 can take Crysis. 570 would be the better option if you wanted to play Metro as well.

Okay...I guess I need to go back to the site reviews and do a final comparison between the 560ti, 570, and the 6950 2gb to make my final decision. I'm still going back & forward regarding the SSD & Revo Drive. If I'm using the SSD for the OS and to open programs only, will having the Revo Drive make use for a faster setup or will the performance difference will be minimal?
