Building a new gaming system not sure which card to get

The specs of said system:
i5 2500k
p67 mobo
8gb gskill x series
xfx black edition 850w PSU
still looking for an SSD for a decent price/1tb western digital green
windows 7 ultimate


Have about $400-500 to spend on an SSD(64+gb) and a video card. None of the parts are bought yet but i will be buying them within a week. I want a Gigabyte 560ti SOC but its sold out everywhere and no idea when cards like these usually go back in stock, then there's the 6950 -> 6970 unlock, but i heard something about ati drivers being crappy + no physx and rumors that the unlock is already fixed. Recommendations?

  1. You will not be able to buy a LGA1155 P/H67 platform until april since they have been pulled of the market because of a chipset flaw! So you will be able to wait for the Gigabyte card. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4142/intel-discovers-bug-in-6series-chipset-begins-recall
  2. I can get it off ebay/amazon the chipset doesn't affect me.
  3. yeah sad thing is it will probably worth the wait, imo...
  4. i don't know why you still want to buy defective mobo. after know about it you can't get benefice of ssd speed if i'm not wrong.
    if you can't wait then buy old 58x mobo.did you see msi 560 ti twin frozr. this also come wid factory oc. and can be over clock to 1ghz which is done by linus tech here is the link in youtube.

  5. The defective chipset only affects Sata 3Gbs ports, so if you only need two ports, you're pretty much good to go, otherwise you should wait.

    Just promise that you will not put it on the used market after you are done with it and someone needing all the ports gets it.
