The 6870 is better than a 460, AND ABOUT par to a 560... So your main games are your main concern.

The 560 ti is abunch better than both, but costs more too.

What brands should I look at for a good solid model with good cooling, and that is decently quiet for the 560ti?

They all are pretty quiet. I have a evga 560ti. Its quite nice.

It exhausts out my case, asnd i'm looking for both gpu and case cool.

The msi type cards are nice n cool n quiet, but exhaust in the case.

EVGA have lifetime warrentees if youre likeing that.

In the end theyre all good, quiet and cool.

Alright still at just under 1 grand. Pretty good methinks. Is the 650w Corsair gonna be able to handle everything ok? The 750's not a whole lot more, but do I need it?
