@ Draygonn:
Finally a good answer .
OP: Try and overclock your card first to see where u can reach. Then buy what ever card that suits you. If your card cant reach 950 mhz then u cant buy the gigabyte 1 cause ull crash (in sli). Also even if you are able to hit 950mhz, watch the temps. In sli temps are higher and stability is harder. My advie get a non-reference card with slight oc. Asus DCII non-top or msi twinfrzr II .

cause the 560 is a little pony in disguise also has a hidden power to keep up in some benchs with the 6950, and was aim'd at the 6870's

I was able to reach 950.

now after the patch I can barely reach 880 without crashing my drivers

Are these 560's hitting well over 1GHz? Normally I wouldn't bother with a factory OC'ed card but 950 or 1000 is pretty damn fast.

my cards can do 1gh @ 1.087 easily in single mode but are not SLI stable in Crysis2, it downclocks to default in a few minutes of gameplay

950 @ 1.087 works on multiplayer, but singleplayer might or might not crash

900 @ 1.050 is rock solid

i must add a case fan so i can try with higher voltage
