You have a very powerful CPU with a fairly weak GPU there. However, the really important question is what games are you going to be playing on the computer? Some games will play just fine on that GPU, others may be almost uplayable. Also, what is your monitor resolution?

Monitor reso is only 1440 x 900 atm but will be getting 1080 soon. That card actually runs skyrim on high/ultra with shadows turned low.

After I get a few more responses I will create a poll with the suggested GPUs to see which one I should get.

^didn't know the OP was in EU, good catch.

Yet the 7850 is still faster than the 560Ti.

Actually, I take it back. I didn't notice that the Twin Frozr was that cheap and I didnt see the link before. That one is the best buy at this point. The Twin Frozr is a good card.

i thought so to i have a haf912 to but if it doesnt just take out the hard drive cage plus if you take out the hard drive cage it increases airflow

The 560Ti is not really that long of a card, it should fit fine. The card was pretty much designed to fit cards like that. Cards like my reference 6950 however might have an issue.
