OR that 7850

You decide, the 570 is faster, and has better driver. 7850 has newer tech, cheaper, lower power consumption and run cooler. With both card you can't go wrong, but do note that the 7850 has many driver issue that I heard, but most of the buyers got happy with the 7850 purchase. That 560 Ti 448 is not a good card for the price as it is the same as the 570's price but slower (performance I think is around 7850).

Just make sure you have enough space on the chassis and decent power supply. 650W seems promising but some bad branded power supply are rated that but in real life only providing 300W. So if it is decent brand I can trust that.
