However, I would recommend a Radeon HD7870 for your system cos your CPU is made by AMD also the hd7870 supports the latest DX11.1 HD7870 is a bit more expensive but plays better on battlefield 3 and other frostbite engine powered games (if you want to play those games), other than that, the GTX 560ti is a fine choice. And what a coincidence, we have the same casing!

I can agree with this I forgot you are running a 8120 I helped you in the Overclcocking Thread it would be better to pair AMD/ATI GPU with your setup as it has configurations that boost performance with the chip and GPU together called Scorpious ............ you are running that now in a fashion but need a stronger gpu like a 7870 ghz ed or 7950 take full advatage of everything

Good catch Xenot

@Solar and Xenot,
The thing is I do a lot of video and photo editing and want to take advantage of nvidia's CUDA thing.
Actually some hi end video editing programs don't even work with ATI.
The GTX 560Ti I'm looking at is a MSI "Hawk" Twin Frozr III, which is factory OC and also can be OC'ed very well according to all reviews. In benchmarks it beats a regular GTX 560 Ti in every aspect, and runs cooler with the Twin Frozr thing.
So following your advice it is either this card or a 7850. Don't want to spend the extra $ on the 7870 or 7950.
Is the Scorpius feature on a 7850 going to make a difference compared to this "special" 560Ti?
What about crossfire with the 7770 I already have plus a new one? Is it worth it?
One additional question: Would a Sapphire 7850 be any good? I've heard some mixed comments...
Thanks for your advice.

Yes, doubling a 7770 would be a better choice than a GTX 560ti, but imo a single card is les buggy and les power consuming. An HD7850 isn't a better choice, and if yu want those CUDA cores then your better off with an Intel processor (i5/i7) and a GTX 660/660ti. Or if yu don't want to change processors then a GTX 660 (around your price range but a bit more) is highly recommended.

With what you are doing Bungee The Video Encoding speed will Mainly Be Cpu the Gpu helps but the CPU will be the work horse 8 threads Multicore rendering doesn't matter what GPU is used the result will fair the same only difference would be gaming 7850 is ideal and would serve great purpose as it is a 3gb card and more powerfull then the 560TI

find a low end quadro gpu

According to me here are your choices:
-GTX 560ti
-HD7770*2
-HD7850
-my recommendation from the green side is GTX 660 (personal choice, but 560ti is fine)
-recommendation from the red side is HD7850 (Crossfiring low end cards is not a good idea)

@Bungee
Quadro GPUs are for workstations and perfect for photo and video editing, they also accelerate CAD. The Quadro are not great for gaming I presume and is expensive but it suits Your needs.

Nah they are not for gaming that is why I suggested a work station GPU if he is serious about editing with a GPU as far as I know that is the one that would take advantage of all the bells and whistles of adobe and other Programs that are used professionaly

Anyway my statement still stands doesn't matter what GPU he chooses his CPU will be doing the work so no need to even drop all kinds of money on a new GPU unless he is going for better performance with the combination 8120+7850 that would be the best you would get out of your system

Or get a 8350 Cpu and your Video editing power will increase by 20% now that would make sense <-------

APU will get chewed up by 8350 and gpu it is only good for low end solutions for people who don't want to invest in premium parts but they are comming along though beating out alot of HDgraphics

Also he can upgrade the cpu he already has the socket for it
