Which card should I get?
I am looking to play on a 1080p TV and want the best performance, which from what I can tell, is the 560's. Will there be any microstuttering issues? Any other recommendations? Thanks :bounce:

I'd go with the 7950 as well. It will use less power and run cooler. Performance wise it will be about the same as either of the other options, but will be more future proof with the ability to crossfire.

I'd would also hav e to recommend the HD 7950 over both of the other choices. The XFX HD for example

Is cheaper than both the GTX 580 and the GTX 560Ti SLI but when you look at the benches you come to realize that all three setups are really close in performance. The only deciding factors are power consumption, price and multi monitor gaming support. It's nice to be able to run 3 monitors off one card, a capability Nvidia's next Gen. cards sorely need.

The real question is what are you using now ? In a few more weeks Nvidia is supposed to release their next Gen. cards.

where I am, the gtx 580 is abot $30 cheaper than the hd 7950, does this make that a better option?

I would still suggest the 7950 for $30 more. But to help out on pricing where are you located?

The SLI setup will be quite a bit faster but a bit loud when maxxed out. I just looked around and it will be a low power vs high performance the SLI will win performance not that the 7950 is bad about on par with the gtx 580 so still good stuff.
