I'm also going after a GTX 560ti, The Gigabyte Super Overclocked version is very good!

I bought a 6950 2GB a few days ago and Sapphire was nice enough to preload it with a 6970 bios on the second bios. Flip of a switch and change some clocks and it's a 6970 2GB now, and I only payed $260 bucks. Plus I got Dirt3 and Deus Ex HR for free.

My initial plan was to get a 560 Ti but the price-performance with an unlocked 6950 is so much higher.

Please, Alienwares are the biggest waste of money out there if your looking for a gaming PC. You can just build your own for 500-600 that is on par with an Alienware.
