I have no preference really, I've just used Nvidia single cards all my life, but if other people can tell me others are better, I'm willing to listen.

Go for Nvidia, ATI lately has been... Bad.
A 560Ti is great indeed for its price, Its still topping benchmarks too.

CPU Zalman is fine,  but if you want cheaper check out the Cooler Master 212.  I sell a ton of them and never get any complaints.

you know, wtf is wrong with both of these companies and their fucking drivers man. Im pissed that nvidia drivers from version 260.85 to 285.58, it still crashes occasionally. Tons of people are having issues. It looks like its only happening to 8800gt and 9800gt users.

killermonkey, do you witness any problems with nvidia drivers?

No cause I upgraded my card. If you are still rocking an 8800 it might be time to think about upgrading.

Companies don't, and shouldn't have to, support 100% of their products for eternity.

little pitch in on the ATi/Nvidia game. I have a 5870 and love it. Still runs almost all games at max settings. BF3, skyrim all with high/extra high. They don't release a lot of drivers, cause from what I've seen, they don't need too.

I've got a 5670, Pretty satisfied with it for the price I've paid, Can run most games at High-Max settings without problems, And indeed, The drivers are perfect, And the Catalyst Control Panel couldn't be any clearer than it is.

I haven't used Nvidia for quite some time, But Nvidia cards are totally breaking records on benchmarks this year.

I stick to my original comment.

If you are using Hammer.  Use Nvidia!

I'm sticking with Nvidia, I've decided on that  ;-)

But is that Mobo and Case combo worth it for the price in my earlier post?
