Good Cards for under 300?

Im looking for some good cards under 300 for my new gaming rig.
I was thinking of using EVGA 02G-P3-1568-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0

is there any other cards out there that are any good or potentially better?

  1. Well, before recon-uk gets here and convinces you to buy a GT 480 for $220 (which is an amazing deal, by the way), I'll go ahead and plug my favorite deal:

    The Sapphire 6950 2GB is on sale for $200 on newegg right now, and it's a great deal. Similar price-performance ratio as the GTX 480. I ordered one myself to crossfire with my current 6950, and I can't wait for it to get here.

    It was originally set to compete with the 560Ti, and it trades blows with it on most every game. The extra memeory vs. the 560Ti could help in some games, and would help with AA enabled and such.

    Radeon HD 7870, it's for $300 after rebate and is leaps and bounds better than any 560 Ti :)

    PS - If you're dead set on a NVIDIA card then I'd recommend the NVIDIA GTX 570

  3. The 6950 I posted is a much better value than a 570... You pay 35-50% more for a card that's 10% better? If that? If you're looking at a 570, you'd be better off getting that 7870 that was linked.

    Plus, every review I've seen that's tried unlocking the extra shaders has succeeded, so it's a 6970 with slightly slower memory.
