New computer. Need a new graphics card. halp

Hello,

I recently purchased a TP67B+ mother board, 16g G.skill DDR3, and Intel i5 2400 (3.1g quad core), I'm in the market for a new video card (still running a 256k radeon :heink: ). I was looking at the gtx560, but unsure if that's the right choice. I'm looking for some suggestions. I'm trying to spend between $150-$200. My over-all goal is to run Skyrim/BF3 on full graphic settings. Also want it to be SLi ready. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. What resolution do you play at? a GTX 560 will not run BF3 on ultra, though it will cope with a none modded skyrim.

    560Ti is a much better option http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125363 its $220 but worth the money, the 560 isnt.

    For BF3 on ultra you will need a 570 at least, though the OC'ing abilities on the 560Ti's will get you damn close @ 1920x1080
  2. Like smeg said, a 560 Ti is going to get you close. Here's one for $190...

    SLI-ready will depend on your motherboard. It should be labeled as SLI-ready and should have two PCI-e lanes both running at least 8x.
  3. Mother board says Crossfire, but I think it supports SLi as well. I know I have 2 PCI-e greater than 8x
