Will be getting a GPU but end of next month but any suggestions? I mean I've looked at no end of X vs Y, Looking at mainly for playing Battlefield 3 like a lot of people out there doing new builds GTX 570 vs HD 6950 then flash if possible. Waiting until there is real benchmarks for retail game.

Looking at a new SATA 3 drive soon ish aswell but budget doesn't cover it for now so leave it out.
