Hi everyone. I am about to build my first pc and want to consult everyone on the forums about choosing the right Graphics card. I play SC2 occasionally, watch movies, and hope to purchase/play BF3 once it is released.
I want to keep my budget to ~$250, which probably means SRI and Crossfire are out of the question. I've done some research and it seems that the GTX 560ti, and 6950 models are pretty good candidates for that price range. Does this sound right? and if so/not, what are some some suggestions for a GPU?

If you look on Newegg.com you will see a big section of video cards. Evga Ds Superclocked 01g-P3-1567-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1 gb 900 mhz. $259.99 Evga Superclocked 02g-P3-1469-KR-GeForce GTX 560 2 gb 850 mhz. $244.99 The extra gb helps out here on this last one although it's not a Ti.
If I were you, I would grab a GTX 560 ti, the hd6950 is also good if you aren't afraid of unlocking.
