Hi,

I am ready to buy a new graphic card but I am confused between GTX 580, AMD 6970 or GTX 570. Last year I made a new Desktop which is listed below what you all think would be the best Graphic Card with the system below. I do plan to keep the GTX 280 to place it as a Dedicated Physx Card. I know that there is a way to use Nvidia and AMD cards together as one a Physx card. Any help, suggestion, comment would be greatly appreciated.

My System Specs.
-------------------------------------------------------
1. Corsair Obsidian 800D Case.
2. Intel i7 930 OC @ 3.8GHz.
3. EVGA X58 Tri-SLI Classified Mother Board.
3. Corsair XSM 6.0GB @ 1480Mhz.
4. Nvidia GTX 280 OC Edition.
5. Corsair H50 Water Cooler for CPU.
6. Corsair 850 Watts PSU.

I do plan to go SLI later maybe in another 6 to 8 months. And I game at 1920 x 1080 Resolution.

i would say the GTX 570 makes the most sense then. as is, its more then enough for 1920x1080 resolution. your mobo won't run the 6870 in crossfire and the GTX 580 in SLI would run with your PSU but you could really push it at stress. anandtech had their GTX 580 set up hitting 777w in stress tests, around 700w in gaming.

How about just one GTX 580 and GTX 280 as a Physx card and not going SLI what do you think is that a good configuration for playing games at very high settings?
