  1. when is the latest you can wait?
  2. i can wait 2 weeks
  3. Normally I would go with the gtx 560, it has slightly better performance than a hd6870. BUT the gtx 560 that you chose is already overclocked, so it will not only be more or less on par with a 6870, but will be better. Also with nvidia you have CUDA, and Phys x, plus generally drivers are better. Another advantage is that nvidia does better with tessellation. Go for the gtx560. What system do you have? What resolution will you be playing at?

    Hope this helps
  4. my setup is
    intel i5 2500k
    asrock extreme 3 gen 3
    g.skill ripjaws x 8gb (2x4gb)
    22 inch 1080p monitor
  5. I would go with nvidia on this one, as you run on a good cpu, and the gtx 560 you chose is overclocked so it should be better than the stock hd 6870.

    Hope this helps
  6. thanks heaps , looks like im buying the gtx 560 oc
