This is what believe in.

If your money can buy a 570 then get it but what 570 are you willing to get? The most affordable or one of the best 570's? They are priced a bit higher than the stock 570's.

You can also buy a good 560Ti like the Gigabyte SOC or a Twin Frozr. The Twin Frozr is good for its price. It comes out of the box overclocked, good aftermarket cooler and priced right. You can also overclock it more because of its good temperature. And then you can save some money and buy something you can also benefit from.

Also the 560Ti's has very good power consumption and in some situations its a bit better than the 6950's and I guess in games that are made for Nvidia.

not to be biased, but 570 all the way

Performance wise, GTX570 hands down, but if you don't mind lowering Anti-Aliasing the 560 would be a Better choice to save money, also AA is basically just Fake Resolution and you play on Full 1080p Resolution so you really don't need a good Anti-Aliasing Graphics card, so in your case, the GTX560 would be the natural choice. DON'T WAIT FOR KELLER.

I voted wait for Kepler because let's be honest if you get a GTX 560 or 570 now in like 7-8 months the new bad boys will come out and you'll be kicking yourself as you watch daily the resale of your 560/570 drops like a rock when the 660/670s come out.

I'm loving my 570 but just this morning I opted to Step-Up to a 580.

Neither the 560 or 570 should have much problem running at your res, hell I play Metro 2033 just perfectly on an overclocked GTX 570 with the slow parts rarely dropping to unplayable framerates with everything maxed out.

It's really up to you. Like someone said you could always get another 570 when Kepler comes out for a good price, or on the devil's advocate side you can also see how low the resale will go when 670 comes out.

Your choice man. Just don't do what I did. Going from a 6870 to a 570 to a 580 (through step up, thank God) really gets expensive. Lol.

I say go for the 570, I have one and it runs nearly all my games smoothly at 1080p without much of any hiccups.

What are you talking about?

Resolution and anti-aliasing are two completely different concepts. Yes you suffer decreases in performance with the more AA you apply, but in no way is it trying to "be"* or "imitate" a higher resolution, as you are implying. The fact is, the lower the DPI on your monitor, the more likely you will need higher amounts of AA to make the jagged edges less noticeable.

Trust me, when I say that even at 1080p resolution (and even higher) you can *still* see the jags.

Unfortunately, that's just the nature of technology. If you want to stay on top, you need to shell out top dollar. Whether if it is worth it or not, is entirely up to the individual to decide based upon their actual needs and expectations. The OP can certainly choose to either keep waiting and waiting and waiting, or enjoy the next 7-8 solid months of actual gaming.

Besides, it's not like as soon as the next generation comes out, this current generation instantly can no longer play any games, right? On a single 1080p display and lower, the majority of people here can't go wrong with either card.

What games do you play??

I play BlackOps, BC2 and started to also play Homefront. My 560 laughs at 60fps in BlackOps and BC2, completely max'd out. Homefront is terribly unoptimized right now and I still get 45-65fps. I powerful CPU is necessary these days too. It also played the Crysis 2 demo just fine too, around 60fps. I am not getting the game though, I thought it sucked. I have not installed CoD4 since I got my 560, but I'd guess 500fps easily. My 260 core 216 got around 200fps. lol

EDIT: YOU NEED A QUAD FIRST!! Hold off on the GPU until you get a Quad core CPU, unless that is coming very soon also.

Go for the GTX560 IMO. Its value is much too compelling to ignore. I picked up the reference Sparkle model for $230 last week It will handle the vast majority of games splendidly at 1080p.

As has been mentioned your C2D platform could use a refresh at some point as well, but upgrading the graphics card alone should make a fantastic impact on your game setting quality/performance.

Ok, or an i series dual. Lol. They are nice gaming CPU's too.

More and more games are reliant on a powerful CPU it seems. That's why I stressed a Quad (or dual with HT) was so important.
