Best Hi-end card for X'mas 2010??

Hi, as i am from India, i can buy the latest products after 20days of release ....

I am upgrading because i want best visuals and fast performance in gaming and movies...
My RIG: DELL XPS 420: Q6600, ATI 2600XT , 3GB DDR2 @800Mhz, 425W stock PSU and will add SAMSUNG PX2370 soon !

My choices:
1. ATI HD 5870
Until Q4 2010, i was planing to go for ATI 5870 but Nvidia says it has 8X performance in tesselation over ATi so i didnt want a card which will be outdated very soon !
2. GTX 470
price vs. performance scenario got changed on release of 6870 so just skiping boring part and what this card offered is Default performance + room for overclock !
so if i had money to Buy ASUS's GTX 470 then after 1/3rd price down i wont buy this card rather i will wait for GTX 570/6970...

So my early question is : Which card now for X'mas ?? A GTX 470 at low price? or wait for GTX 570 which will be overpriced !
Again 6970 seems little weak in tesselation to me But really impressive in Eyespeed tech. so even after selecting the card, now i am again confused for my card :) 
And is coolermaster's GX 650W good for single card??

if some one owns XPS 420 he can tell his view , contact :
I didnt tell u, i am going in hardcore gaming after winning ride with Lewis Hamilton when he came in India this sep :)

The coolermaster gx650 is good enough for any of the current cards, can't say on the gtx 570 or 5970 as they're not even out yet but it most likely will.

i'd wait a little and see how the 5900s penform but if you can't wait get the 6870.

Avoid the gtx470 it's a hot running power hungry card that's also weaker than a 6870

Hi, m from jaipur and i think no one will recommend 5870 at this time as 6870 is better in tesselation and costs so less...
but depends on ur taste...
At this time i am looking for future card which has good tesselation power... and u shud know GTX 470 costs very less than ur new card...... thats Rs.14350

Best deal at this time cud be if u went for CF6850 which will cost u Rs.22000 and will beat 5870 easily... if ur mobo has 2 slots
but as u got so no problems in that one

Tesselation really isn't that important in games.

That's true for now, but who knows what the future brings? It certainly seems that we're leaning in that direction at the moment!

Well the taste do not matters here.well lets see the difference between 5870 and 6870.

Only 1---3D SUPPORT.
IN India it still takes 3to4 years for making people addict to 3D
ONLY 58% Of INDIANS HAVE COMPUTERS(Includes 2 computers per person)
Well Iam a SEMI-PROFFESIONAL GAMER.MY AGE IS JUST 14.I Have participated with PADDLE POP ZONE LEVEL FOR 3 YEARS
I PREFER GAMING.
Well see any bench marks 5870 competes with GTX 480 and beats with higher resolutions.
U R RIGHT ABOUT THE 6850 CROOSS FIRE IT BEATS 5870.BUT NO ONE RECCOMENDS CROSS FIRE FOR AN comparision vs Other Cards .

The new sensational news is that the cooling in 68xx series is worst on any video cards.if u really want an perfect performance cross fire 5850.

APPOLOGISE TO BE GIVEN.IF SPOKEN WRONG.TASTE DO NOT MATTERS.THE WAY WE THINK MATTERS.SORRY.

Before you go buying Tesselation and 3D cards (like ATI 6000s) just be sure you're going to use those features. 5870 is 'faster' than the 6870 (see this website GPU Hierarchy) but that probably doesn't test for Tesselation (?). Of course the 5870 costs more.

Be sure of what you will need.
