I'm late to the party. Another vote for GTX 580, and your AA requirements are more then met. I've been cranking on AA in Stalker CoP to levels I didn't think I could get away with. 8xQ + 4xTSAA + gamma correction = drool worthy moments.

not enough extra funds to splurge on a 580 at the moment. i'll be keeping my eye on the prices in the coming months tho.

I have to agree, a GTX 580 is a "splurge" purchase, not a bang for buck option. I do like to call it a "bang for bucks" solution though. You get lots o bang for lots o bucks

Just throwing this out there... I know you already bought some goodies but if you can afford it a 6950 is an ubelievable deal since you can flash it to a full 6970. Might be worth considering.

yeah, i noticed that. if i had more time to goof around with graphics card bios's i might do it. i doubt the performance on a 6970 would be much different than my current gtx 295. also i don't really spend as much time gaming. i do like the 580 the best, and will probably just wait till the next gen rolls out and get a 580 and call it good. unless a mysterious stranger sends me paypalz....

well since u gave all options..it makes sense to get the gtx580 as it seems to be a ahead of the 6970....but if money is tight...then the 6970 is the better value/$ card.

yes. but considering the improvement i would see with the 6970 (or flashed 6950), the value/$ doesn't look as good. not to mention the ati drivers which i am not a huge fan of.

There is only 1 sensible choice for people on a budget

HD 6950 since it will unlock to a 6970.

If I was going for a 570 I'd get an asus.
