Please tell me what you think. Also, i'm wondering if i should get the MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III, as it's performs better. However, included with the 6950 you get Deus Ex, and it's cheaper. Price with 6950: £854 Price with GTX 570: £890
More aboutrate build choice
This is a great system. I think you will be happy with the 6950, no need to spend the extra $$ on the 570.
how are the drivers on the ATI? I read up somewhere that they are rather bad. I also generally prefer Nvidia over ATI. I'm pretty torn :L
