I would recommend the 2GB 6950 especially because you mentioned you may want to do CF or SLI in the future and that makes the 6950 an easy recommendation. The one that was already posted at $243 after shipping and rebate is the best I've found right now as well so that's the one to get. If you are still considering 560s then I would go with this Gigabyte 560 for $215 after rebate with free shipping over any other 560 right now, it has a decent cooler and an overclock of 900MHz right out of the box. Either the 6950 or 560 would be a great value at those prices but like I said going CF or SLI I would go with the extra VRAM on the 6950s right now.

I don't count rebates. As far as I'm concerned, the Gigabyte model is $5 more because you receive a rebate card instead of a check. You get a gfx card and $20 worth of spending money on a prepaid card that will arrive in 2-3 months and cannot be converted directly into cash.

That and the reference design on the GTX560 is phenomenal. I LOATHE the GTX465/470/480/570/580 heatsink designs, but nvidia has nailed it with the GTS450, GTX460/550/560s. That's not to say the Gigabyte model is inferior though. I love the windforce designs.

Once you get 35 reps you can sell it on here, that's what I'm going to do with my spare xbox.

EVGA is the best company bar none to go with
