What would be the best graphics card for gaming on a 1600x900 monitor on ultra with the usual battlefield and stuff. I want to upgrade to 1920x1080 but i wont be able to for a few months. So is there any card that could give me good performance on ultra on both a 1600x900 and then a 1920x1080 a few months later? I was thinking of a 570 but i didn't know what you guys would think is the best. Please help.

A GTx 560 Ti is good but A GTx 580 at a GTx 570 price range is awesome... If you just play games, get a Radeon video card...
I highly recommend you get this 6950 AND unlock it to a 6970 for better performance...

Get a 7850, it smokes the 560ti and performs as well as a 570 with much lower power consumption and cheaper to add. If you're budget is higher, get the 7870, performs just as well as a 580 for about $350

Best if you go with GTx 580 because GTx 680 lack of OpenGL stuff... GTx 580 is currently the best for video editing IF you use CUDA... If you cant afford it, buy a GTx 560 or a 560Ti
GTx 560 (recommend SLI for better performance)

You can Buy A GTx 560Ti 448 Cores... I recommend EVGA...

If you wanna save money and do Rebate, buy this MSI 448 Cores...

No if you want use CUDA... 7870 does the same or similar but since 580 have CUDA(If you use it), it does better...
