I would also go for the 560ti if it is within your budget range , also the longer you wait the more chance the prices will drop of you could catch a sale. Once the 600 series is released then there should be a price drop.
The 600 series are supposedly coming out in december.
Also it depends on what you're doing with the graphics cards. If you are going eyefinity, then get Ati. But if you have a single monitor and want better drivers, then go nvidia.
I bought the 6850 and i single monitor game. And i like it; it plays all my games 1080p medium/max settings. I plan on crossfiring when i get a new Mobo.
buggy drivers is not that bad... I mean I know is not perfect I have a 6850 for almost a year and I yet to have a driver issue with mine... I recommendo you the 6850 over de 550 for sure... if those are your options... the drivers are not that bad... at least not for me
