    560ti 448 core or 570 maybe if your lucky for that price, 6970 would be good to but not sure if the price is too high now. For under £200 probably 6950

    The GTX560Ti 448 are priced way to close to the GTX570. They shouldn't be more than £210 or so. I would stay clear of this one.

    For £240 you can get yourself a GTX570 which will perform better than the similarly priced 448 560.

    Might be worth holding on just a little bit to see how AMDs new generation 7000 series perform.

    Yeah Yeah I know people will say why not wait for even longer... etc etc.

    But.. it'll be interesting to see how the first graphics cores built on the 28nm process technology perform esp with respect to performance /watt /temp etc. If their a bit of a dissapointment you cant go wrong with a 2GB 6950 or if you cant wait.

    Just a tiny bit over budget. PNY GeForce GTX 570 £249.99 or a 2GB 6950 which can be had for £194.99

    Is the £50 worth it?

    I think I'm stuck between the Asus gtx560 ti 1gb and the Asus 6950 2gb
