as you can see by my sig I have a 6870 now. Been running it @ 1920x1080 for 4 months now and it handles this res easily with what I ask of it. The value of the 6870 is as its peak right now I think, with getting one for $150ish after mir and the next step up @ $100 more but not giving a 40% increase in performance (the 6950).

well, i read where the 560 ti's were faster than the 560 and the 6870, but, look to be at least 70 bucks more.
