My 6950 hasn't really had performance issues yet. I generally play with v-sync on and I've only noticed drops to 30fps in some intense scenes in Rage. I'm playing through my backlog of 1+ year old games now, but I'm sure I'll pick up BLOPS 2, Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite, Darksiders 2, Torchlight 2, etc. I just want to be sure I can play at max detail at 60fps in 1440p. I also need the card to be quiet-ish. My P183 does a good job with sound, but higher pitched GPU fans can get annoying. I like that the Twin Frozr uses 2 80mm fans. I will sell my Toxic 6950 to cover some of the cost.System Specifications:

Play a wide variety of games. Not a huge online CoD or BF player, but I play them for single player and I play a lot of major releases.
VI. Do you plan on overclocking the card you intend to purchase?
If it stays quiet, cool, and stable. I'm past the point where I have hours and hours to tweak my computer. I just want it to work when I have some time for games.
