TigerDirect is having a deal where you can get the http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...\ails.asp?EdpNo=1961904&sku=P56-0569 combo package that comes with

A PNY GeForce GTX 560 1GB GDDR5 GPU

8GB PNY XLR8 DDR3 RAM

and Battlefield 3 :love: 

is this a good deal? and also, how long will this card last before I need an upgrade.

Note: I don't mind playing on a rather low resolution, BUT I don't want it to be terrible. It will be matched with an AMD X4 965 BE AM3 CPU and a Coolmax 750w modular PSU.

It will probably be relevant about as long as the rest of that system ;)

It depends on your expectations.

I am still using a Radeon HD 5850 @ 1920x1200 resolution. I don't plan on upgrading until next year when I upgrade my entire PC after Intel releases their Haswell CPU. That basically means I will keep my Radeon HD 5850 until AMD releases their HD 8000 series or when nVidia releases their GTX 700 series.
