    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.

    Hows that for a GPU?
  4. OP already found a GTX560Ti for $180 after rebate!
  5. This one is EVGA. It's only 10$ 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.
  6. 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.
