Sweet. Although I might just drop the more money on the antec as the rosewill isn't a green.

Try playing metro2033 and getting 60 FPS. Either that or Arcania: Gothic 4

I have played metro2033. It is a fun game and good looking, but I don't see how it pulls so much power.

It's the textures and the level of detail, top that with running physx on your card and it will drop to workable, but not ideal, framerates. So yes, a GTX570 will last you a nice while. I wouldn't however expect to be maxing games out on it in a years time.

I see that the 6950 1gb has a better benchmarks. Do you think I should get one of those?

If you're going with the 6950 get the 2gb. The second you get into high AA it'll struggle.

It's like $20 more but well worth it.

EDIT - Just to confirm, the only reason I could find for me to go with the GTX570 was because I wanted physx. The 6950/70 are both great great cards.

Yes, I Do see that they have a VERY HIGH 3dmark 2011 CPU score, alot higher than the 560. I am going to look into it.

Stay away from Rosewill PSUs, I used to have a Rosewill 700Watt PSU that short-circuited while OCing a Phenom II X4 940, my Computer literally caught on fire. frown.gif

Thank you for the input. I am going to get an antec I think.
