I would definitely recommend going the extra £3 MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II/OC if you want a slightly fast and cooler card.
I have ran out of cash and I wont be getting SLI anyway, there are better ways to improve performance on my current pc other than extra cards.

Stick with nVidia. I have 2 PCs with Radeon HD and they suck. nVidia supports many gaming softwares like Physx.

Woah, a bit much? I understand that is your view but I have had 3 ATI Radeons in the past 4 years and it is fine, I also have used Nvidia cards in my system. Physx is used on about 10 games so it is not that relevant and ATI drivers are fine.

ATI do not suck.

It sucks my friend. Most of the games are not optimized for ATI/AMD.

Look, I can understand you like Intel and Nvidia. I can also see why but if your saying ATI/AMD suck purely off your back and personal experiences fine but please be tolerant of my views and acknowledge that there are other views. I am not starting a flame war there both very good in there own way and this competition will never end.

I say competition is good as it can bring out the best in something but it can show a nasty side which is what has been proven today.
There is no need to Brand bash all of them have equal value ,I have used both brands and performances wise Nvidia is ok but not the best .....
But this is just a opinion Amd have used 3 cards so far and they have proven worthy of the buy

Maybe you had bad experiences with different models but please don't down a brand because it simple didn't fit your needs the Op here is purly stating what he got and what he really needs not what is better

Just stay on the subject and everyone will be happy

Thanks, I think I made a good choice and it should provide me the power I want.

It was just by quoting me, it suggested you where talking to both of us. I was trying to be tolerant with someone who doesn't understand that because you like something, someone else will.

I see your point now. I hope this card does me proud. It cost a lot of money :s
