So I was looking to upgrade from my 9800gt since i just got a new processor.
The things that I am looking at:
a second 9800gt to SLI
gt560 ti
and I have a contact which is willing to sell me 2x gtx260 216 core for $60 each

what do you suggest? :bounce:

just get the 560ti and sell your 9800gt, or you could use it as a dedicated physx card if you play any hardware physx games. The other options are cheaper and nearly as powerful, but you miss out on dx11 and have increased heat and power consumption in your case.

Yes GTX 560 Ti is a good upgrade, but may we know your other specs, first?

The 6950 is a great card too, either way you can't lose
