Recommend Me: Mid-Range GFX Card

I'll be buying a new GFX card soon so I can't play Syndicate in better detail or enjoy its many hours of R18+ entertainment in smooth frame rates.

Currently have a GeForce GTX260. nVidia fanboy since 99 (rocking the TNT), so prefer to stick with nVidia, but open to Radeon if recommended for value.

Budget is $250 ... tempted to spend $370 on a GTX570.

Front Runners:

GTX560
GTX570

Also any thoughts on video memory? 1gb, 1280mb or 2gb?

Isn't the ATI 6970 > GTX570 ?? You can get them for $350 or something.

edit: seem they are basically neck and neck, and the better card depends on what game your playing.

it is very nice on so many levels, and should you feel the need to overclock, it has the best cooling

I've got a several years old Core 2 Duo something or other, with 560 TI running at 1920x1200 I've been very happy with performance in Skyrim and BF3, particularly given the low cost of the card.

Like the OP I dont even consider ATI cards; it makes no difference to me whether one is 5% better than the other. Nvidia drivers seem better so I stay with them.
