Just an FYI, thats a 560SE which has 288 Cuda Cores, 776, 1552, and 3828 MHz core, shader, and memory clock respectively compared to an actual GTX 560 with 336 Cores, 810, 1620, and 4008 MHz core, shader and memory clocks. Obviously the 560 SE will have lower performance.
My vote goes toward a 6870 which, if you let me include mail in rebate, can be had for $149
The 7770 can't touch that and according to TR's 99th percentile frames
, the 6870 even outperforms the $200+ GTX 560Ti
will use about 50W more under load than a 7770
but more performance costs more power. Also there isn't anything in that performance bracket in the new 28nm fab yet. Nvidia still doesn't have anything below the $400 GTX 670 and AMD has a hole between the 7770 at $120 and the 7850 at $250
