APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Now,tomorrow,next day,etc. ASAP :na:  BUDGET RANGE: $200-$400. If its worth it possibly high $400's

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. FPS games. battlefield 3. COD. Movies/videos. Internet.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: GTX 260 & OCZ 550w fatal1ty. (I know i might have to upgrade this also :??:  )

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
i5-750. LGA1156 p55 microATX mobo. 4gb RAM. Coolermaster storm scout.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg, tigerdirect, anything really. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: This is where i'm stumped. I have no clue if i want nVidia or AMD. Do I have to have nVidia because my CPU is intel? I dont know if I should buy a cheaper card now and then buy a newer series card when they come out? Or just buy the best I can get now? I know It's either between the GTX 560/570/580 but I dont know which RADEON cards are good. Are RADEON cards better for FPS games? Any specific cards that are known to be better than the GTX'S?

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe, but only when I get a new mobo cause mine is MicroATX. :( 

MONITOR RESOLUTION:1680x1050

from nVidia i know I either want the GTX 570 or 580. idk if i should just get a 560 then wait until the new series comes and but one of them. And from RADEON I dont know, but they look cheaper for better specs then nVidia from what I've seen. Any specific cards that stand out, performance wise, with fps games?

ALL comments are helpful and appreciated!
thanks :bounce:
