It would be a good choice and should handle that resolution for a long time.

it will be an great upgrade for that resolution even for 1080p.on that resolution all games will run at high setting.:) 

my choise will be msi twinfrozr iii its better in cooling stays quite and great overclocking ability.:)

I would go for the Twin Frozr III.But if you can I suggest waiting until Nvidia release's it's new lineup so that the prices will drop.

1. The 560-448 is a bit more than ya need for your resolution. A 900MHz 560 Ti @ $205 would be just fine and about 60% of the cost.

2. The 56o-448 is really a 570 (GF110) with disabled set of SM's. The reference design 570's have had a history of frying their VRM's when overclocking. If you go with the 560-448 or 570, I'd make sure that it's a model that does NOT use the reference 6 phase VRM design and get a model with an 8 phase design. The Frozr's have 6, the Lightning / Hawk have more.

Gigabyte 570 OC Windorce 3x and MSI 570 TwinFrozr II both use the reference PCB design with 6 phase VRM (4 for GPU and 2 for memory). They simply put a custom cooler on top. MSI cards have similar incidents reported....

Gainward 570 Phantom, Gainward 570 GS Goes Like Hell, Palit 570 Sonic Platinum all have 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory). Same amount with the GTX 580. All these cards have identical PCB since they belong to the same graphics card manufacturer group.....

- Asus GTX570 DirectCU II also has 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory)

And so far I havent seen similar incidents with any of these cards on the net. Which really brings me to the conclusion that this problem is only for the reference design 570 PCB with insufficient VRM phases.

True. Also you might want to go for GTX 600 series instead? Worth the wait IMO. Or, get a card that you will be able to re-sell for good return just to keep going.

That too.

I just remember how cheap the 5850's were back when the 6000 series came out.I plan on getting another 6870 hopefully in the same fashion.

The GTX 480 is $250 new on newegg right now. I'll tell you what, hands down that is the best video card deal out there right now. However, I did see a 560ti 448 core on newegg for $220 after rebate w/ free batman: arkham city. Now that's a deal. If I needed to buy a video card, I would without a doubt buy that GTX 480, same performance as a 570.

The GTX480 was a terrible card.Consumed way to much power and created A LOT of heat.In fact I think it's the hottest running cards to date.And for $250 it's really not a deal at all.

the 560 Ti 448 are not priced right and so for the price you pay for that card you could get a much better 2 GB 6950 by Powercolor and flash it to a 6970 or you could get another 2 GB 6950 that probably is not flashable ..... bottom line is they are charging too much for the new 560 Ti

The GTX 560 Ti 448 would be a good choice for 1680x1050. Its about the top card you should get with that resolution. Of the one's you listed you need to decide what is your priority. Do you need maximum cooling at the expense of noise or quiet operation?

Best cooling but higher noise

1. MSI Twin Frozr III
2. EVGA Doubleshot
3. Zotac
4. EVGA Reference design

I would choose the EVGA reference since it has the quietest cooler (and that's important to me), but its also the least effective if you plan on seriously overclocking the card. If that's your plan the MSI is best.
