My 9800GT graphics card is getting a little old, so it is time to get a new graphics card. I have decided to buy from america, as the exchange rate is awesome - Newegg doesn't ship overseas, but amazon does on some cards. I want to spend ~ 200 USD, so that gives me a couple of choices:


nVidia:

MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5

Zotac GeForce GTX 560

ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC
  


AMD

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870

ASUS Radeon HD 6870

XFX ATI Radeon HD6870


The nVidia cards would be my first choice, but which one? They are nearly identical in price, and the only diferences as far as I can tell is that the Zotac has a extra displayport, the ASUS is slightly OC'ed, and the MSI has x2 Fans!


Or should I get the AMD's?       
    
Thanks!

Comes down to personal preference really, all cards are pretty equal. Id choose the saphire 6870 becasue its the cheapest.

I ended up getting the ASUS 560, because of OC.
