I think I've made my choice. I'm gonna go with the EVGA 560 Ti in SLI. It costs more then I wanted to spend but then there's more value in it. I might see if I can sell my EVGA GTX 280 SSC to help or else I'll just keep it and put it in my Nephew's computer.

On a similar note;

Seems AMD couldn't wait and has announced the HD 6990. Reviews are already out as well. No, I won't be buying one. Especially at $699. I can't imagine anyone running out to buy two for CF, although I'm sure there will be some.
