Default Video Card Recommendation! ($450 Budget)

Hi folks! I'm in the process of buying parts for a new set-up! At the moment I'm having trouble choosing a graphics card. There's so many which have encouraging reviews.

My budget is £290 which I believe is around $450 US.

Don't care whether it's Nvidia or ATI just wan't good value for money. Any suggestions/recommendations would be most welcome, thanks.

This is a good card, and with great stock cooling.

Thanks for this.

I've actually been leaning towards this: Newegg.com - EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

While I'm looking to build a high-end system I'm a noob when it comes to understanding the mechanics of each part. I'm actually replacing a 7 year old dell dinosaur. What's the difference between these two cards exactly? Your card is slightly more expensive so I assume it offers a bit more. Thanks again.

Better cooling is the main difference.

I will be waiting, I'm just weary of purchasing something that is so new. I prefer to read expert reviews on products before hand. You also have the issue of early faults which might have to be rectified at a later date.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
