Currently running a EVGA GTX 275. I'm looking for a sub-$200 upgrade...would like to stick with EVGA.

I'm seeing the GTX 560 going for around $189...but I'm looking for recommendations.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Do not go bellow GTX 560 Ti.
GTX 560 is a superclocked GTX 460 so to say.
Would be better to wait for Kepler...

I agree, in your case go with a GTX 560 Ti. But I'd wait a bit until the 600 series video cards are released, since the 500 series will drop in price even more.

I'm planning to upgrade my video card as well from an eVGA GTS 450. My max. price range is 260 dollars and recently saw the MSi N560Ti GTX Hawk go on sale for around 200 dollars & thought I should put it in Sli. Is there anything better?
