ok so im looking at GTX560 TI. i currently have a Radeon HD 4850 512mb I'm thinking of buying crysis 2 and BF3 shortly and im sure my current card wont be able to handle it. im just wondering which model i should buy. I'm a noob when it comes to knowing Hardware and such.

I would either get one of the EVGA models, which are really just clocked depending on how much money you wanna spend. Or I would get one of the MSI Freezer coolers with the dual fans, as I have heard those are great. However, EVGA wins my first vote.

There is a new 560TI card coming out next week(Nov 29) based off the 570 card. It will have more shaders, memory bandwidth, and memory 1.25gb. This is the card i'm looking at for BF3. But it may also drive the current 560 and 560TI down in price.

Evga i have 2 superclocks and they both top 1000mhz easily and memory from 2103 to 2425mhz .I am afraid to go higher with the memory but i run them at 950 core 1900 shader and 2400 memory all on stock volts.
The new 560 ti looks interesting hope its not another gtx 465.
Never know they night even be able to be flashed as gtx 570s.
So if you can wait for the new 560 ti benchmarks and make your choice then.
