Here's my setup :

CPU : AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2,8 GHz
Mobo : ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
RAM : G.SKILL DDR3 2x4 GB 1066 MHz CL7
Graphics : PENDING
HDD : Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
PSU : OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply
Case : Thermaltake Element G Black ATX Mid Tower



Id like to know which brand to go with. I want something QUIET. And also I'm not sure if I need a gtx 460 or a radeon 6850. I'm leaning toward the 6850 because it seems to perform better in most games, but id like to have your input on this anyway.....

why don't you screw both up, and get the HD 6950 or GTX 560ti ?

It's mainly because of the $$ factor

I second this, I just bought the exact model Gigabyte 6850 samuelspark linked to from newegg, and it installed effortlessly in win 7, super quiet, and games well.
