I am going to be building a budget gaming pc and I was wondering whether I should go for a Powercolor 1GB 6870 or a Asus GTX 560, however in terms of price the Powercolor is cheaper.

My other parts will be:
AMD-FX 6200
ASUS M5A97-EVO AM3 DDR3 Motherboard - $121
Kingston HyperX 8G (4x2) DDR3 1600
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
Cooler Master Centurion II W/ PSU - $99

I'm not completely sure about the motherboard and case, if you have any changes to these that have similar prices it'll be much appreciated.

BTW, the 6870 is worth $140, whilst the GTX 560 is worth $180.
