Of the power supplies the Seasonic is the best choice but also the most expensive so it will depend on what you want to spend.

This one is EVGA. It's only 10$ more, under $200 and no rebates to deal with.

Up to the op of course. Whatever you get - it's going to be a good choice.

I certianly wouldn't get a Galaxy video card. I would spend the extra few dollars and get the card from a good quality card maker That gives the best warranty of anybody.

There is a performance difference between GTX560 and GTX560Ti to take into account as well!

Approx 10- maybe 15%. In most games that's usually about 5-10fps difference.

Take a look here for the charts:

I know that, my logic is 10-15% more powerful $10 cheaper after MIR makes it worth it for me!
(please don't bring up hassle with MIR, I have gotten hundreds of them and not one has failed!)

True that makes sense. I won't argue there.
