ive never had a single problem with either of my ATI cards or drivers and am more than happy with my card. as for problems with shadows, i have no clue what thats all about. the 6850 is a good card it ran the bf3 beta well but i upgraded b4 bf3 released so cant coment on how it performed in the actual game. plus u can pick them up for sub 100 now

No Nvidia has Physx, very large difference. Physx only comes into play if the game uses hardware (AKA CUDA) accelerated Physx, of which there isn't that many available (20 odd with a half dozen or so mainstream titles, with the rest being ones that most have never heard of).

ok just go with the gtx 560 then , that card matches the 6870 in performance they run almost the same.Here you can compare gpus and as you can see they are almost the same so the 560 would be a good choice if you cant get the 6870 GeForce GTX 560 vs Radeon HD 6870 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

OK, so I have the GTX 560 now and it's awesome. The FPS is really not so stable on some games but it never drops below 30.

I haven't forgotten about you guys I'm gonna give reps tomorrow.

Just one more thing... does this card HAVE to be so noisy? If I reduce the fan speed, will the card overheat or something?

usually if u reduce the fan speed it will still speed up once it hits a certain temperature. so u will be ok. just try n get a balance between noise n temp. adjust so its as quiet as poss but keeps the temp from raising when.
its down to the fact that the coolers fans r so small meaning they need to spin faster to move more air

What temp do I need to keep it away from? I adjusted the fan speed to 45-50% when it becomes just a bit noisy but the CPU fan is noisier so it's not a problem. And I played for an hour and I checked the temps. It was 65-67C.

gpu's run a lot hotter than cpu's and 65c is nothing for a gpu so ur well within the temp limits. i think anything below 90c is ok. u have nothin to worry about ur temps r good.
i have my fans set at 45% which keeps my gpu @ 46c when idle. it will raise ingame but doesn't go over 62c.
its mad how much difference there is in noise once the fans go over the 50% mark lol. @ 45% my fans run at about 1900rpm which is pretty quiet but as soon as they go over 2000rpm it starts gettin loud lol. no probs when i have my headset on tho

I set SmartDoctor to notify me if it ever reaches 80C. I too have headphones but I'm not alone in the room. My brother is sleeping while I'm playing sometimes.

Thanks, you're very helpful. I just noticed that it actually is my PSU actually... it's the noisy one. I suppose I can't do anything about that, no?
