Hey guys at the end of this month I will be buying all the bits my very first self built computer (yay!). But one thing that is giving me no end of woe is deciding on a video card - I am pretty flexible with my budget - I can go all the way up to the £270 (give or take) price range but at the moment I am thinking the 560 ti seems to be by far the best value for money and I am seriously considering getting a card now to "tide" me over until the new 28nm cards are out at the end of the year. The resolution I will be gaming at is 1920 x 1080 so pretty standard there. Anyway it started out that I wanted a 6970 but then I heard it sounded like a jet engine and had/has some driver issues particularly with one of the main games i will be looking at playing Shogun 2 (and the supposed TW favouring of the red team is one thing that was sway me in that direction too) anyway that was back when my build was in its infancy a few months ago and I was not as knowledgeable about the fine details . So for the past few weeks the MSI GTX 560 TWIN FROZR II 1GB has been sitting happily in my shopping basket but then I started getting restless and was looking at other 560's like the Gigabyte Super OC model and the 2GB Palit model and again I was thrown in a state of non-committal. Now as the date approaches where I will be able to buy my build I would really like your input on what card and what manufacturer/cooler/OC I should get. Honestly I wish I had the money for a new rig last year when it seems like the choice was much easier - Red Team all the way over the overall apparently lackluster Nvidia offerings now it seems like making a choice is much more difficult! Also probably important to point out I am not comfortable with the idea of flashing a 6950 to 6970 as I've heard a few horror stories about potential consequences of running a "6970" on x2 6 pin power connectors. Thanks fellas!
