Thanks! I am looking to have something very balanced. I will probably edit more than game, but I want to be able to play games such as BF3, Crysis, SC2, and any newer DX11 games that come out. My editing needs are not as huge as I dont work with too many layers, but would love to cut transcoding times down and effects processing times WAY down.

the gtx 570 would be a perfect fit for you...it is still a very powerful gaming card and it does well in CUDA applications as well.
