  1. 4gb of ram will be fine for games so save the money there and go with the gtx 570. That'll be more than enough power a while.
  2. Well, yes, at 1920x1080 you can forget the 560. And maybe the 570 too.
    IMHO, a 6950 would be a better choice - If you are just gaming.
    -Less power consumption
    -Lower cost
    -More VRAM
    -Can be flashed to a 6970 should you desire
    -Better crossfire performance

    But if you Nsist on Nvidia, go with the 570, you cannot lose with that either.

    I have no real preference i just heard the nvidia cards are overclocking monsters, im trying to get the most out of my machine as i can without upgrading down the line
