GTX 560Ti vs 6870 vs ...

Hi Guy's! Samo Here!

I'm currently building my first system and I need some help choosing a good graphics card. I do video editing but my computer is made for gaming. I have looked at the 6870 and the GTX 560 Ti so what one should I buy and why?

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 13th of April BUDGET RANGE: Up to $200SD Before Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Skyrim, Guild War's 2, WOW, TF2, Portal 1/2, SWTOR), Video Editing, Programming, HD Video Watching.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: I currently don't own either but I might be getting the Corsair TX V2 650w Modular

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Gigabyte GA-97a-D3, Seagate 1tb, I currently have no other parts.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Amazon.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: N/A

PARTS PREFERENCES: N/A

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080, 1920x1200, HDMI

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Must run fairly new games with a High FPS, over 50/75 on Average would be good!

    Get a GTX 560 Ti and overclock it up to 950 mhz or beyond like the Zotac AMP! card. For just over $200 these days, its a great deal. Skyrim and most of the games you listed favor Nvidia cards.
