The 560 is more like a 6870, so it's faster.

+1 for GTX 560. Also is there any particular reason you need 16GB of ram in your build?

Sauce Im a big multi-tasker, on my previous desktop i would keep around 3 diffrent web browsers with 8 tabs each while playing Battle field 3 at the same time. And honestly The more ram the better ;)

That is indeed what hes saying and it's true the 6870 is 560 rival not the 6850 the 6850 rival is the 460 1GB.

You can do that with 8GB no problem. I would rather spend the extra $50 on an upgrade to a GTX 560 ti.

you guys dont understan the ram is 85, to get a decent 2*4 memory modules it would cost around 45 dollars, Which would save me 40 dollars The gtx 560 is around 140 bucks im not sure if you can get a 560 ti with 180 dollars.

The Zotac GTX 560 Ti AMP! has been on Newegg this week at $180 after rebate. There are a few others under $200 as well if you are willing to go with rebates.

Worked for me. I don't see why it wouldn't. You would think there would be some complaints if there was a scam. It takes some time to process, but with MSI at least I was able to track its progress on-line.
