Cool Graphics Card Dilemma

Soooo, i've been researching a bit and it got me just more confused.

i don't want to SLI
I don't want to upgrade next year when nvidia comes with 600 series
I don't want to spend too much

Do i go 560 TI w 2gigs or
570?

Here some options:
Number 1 or number 3



or this 560 TI with 2 gigs

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130683

yes, it's gotta be nVidia. ;-)

any input appreciated!

No video games made for Linux.
So I am still running a 9500GT.

All the money I don't spend, goes to buying my wife motorcycles...
Just saying :P

Buy up 2 of these bad boys, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150517


And now buy up 3 moniters or tv's of your size of choice and do this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlRPfeDyFKU


Once that's all complete you can thank me later by dinner and a movie.

Negative on Radeon, negative on two of them LOL!

X, after i upgrade, we can swap for my 9800 GT if you want. i just wanna have something as a spare. don't really need it but just in case. in the meantime, keep buying your wife motorcycles!! or buy a PC and join the kewl kids crowd. Battlefield 3 is where it's at!

Thanks PaleHorse. The game i'm interested in is not yet out there, so we won't know about that. Most people are running two 560 as SLI, but I don't want to go that route, so i figured going 570 right away is a better choice. We'll see.

I know I play PC Games, I never touch the PS3. So.. I invested heavily on a video card and don't regret it. I dont have to worry about Framerate for a long time. I have a GeForce GTX 580, it rocks my socks.

Yeah, 580 is really nice, but 570 had to do it for me...

it's crazy how i have no trouble burning thru a set of tires over the weekend, but i have trouble spending the same amount on a graphic card that's good for a year or two.

I couldnt agree more lol, Its crazy on how I can spend $500 on a video card and not buy the exhaust system I've been craving for a year now for around the same price.
