Hello,

I will be building a new PC between now and the end of the year and im unsure of what graphics card i should choose. I will be gaming on 1920x1080 and want to max out games such as MW3 and battlefield 3. I have had a look at the GTX 560 Ti and the GTX 570 and they seem to be a good choice. I have heard that NVIDIA is better due to drivers being an issue with amd and NVIDIA cards are just better performers. This is the system that i have chosen:

Motherboard - Asus P8Z68-V Pro
CPU - Intel i7 2600k
Cooler - Corsair H80
Memory - G.skill Ripjaws X 8GB 1600MHz
Power - Corsair AX750
Case - HAF X
HHD - Western Digital caviar black 1TB
SSD - Crucial m4 64GB

If you have any recommendations please tell me.

Thanks.

My budget will be about $2000. I don't know whether to buy a single 570, such as the Asus GTX 570 DCII which is a 3 slot card, or buy a single GTX 560 Ti and then buy a second one later on and have the ability to get 2 monitors. Ive heard that the brands to go for are EVGA, MSI and ASUS for NVIDIA cards.
