The 560TI is the fastest. I would go for it, it is a really good price for one. You will still see a good boost with the other two cards though.

I'd say the 6870 is the best priced one but the 560 ti is good if you need the extra performance.

no, the i3 would not bottleneck. The 560 is going to be pretty much as powerful as the 6870 so theres no point in paying that much.

The resolution of your monitor is critical to making this decision .

If its 1080o then the more graphics power the better .

If its 1600 x 900 then you just wont need more than the 6870
