haha all I have is a Nvidia GTX 260 and I load the game 1st or 2nd usually with 0 frame rate drop. New video cards are dropping soon, so I'd hold off.

gtx 260.... never ati radeon NEVER..... unless your a ps3 freak, none the less... depe3nding on your processor

get a 1.5 ddr5 gb gtx 460 ...fits in PCI express and you can gedt it for 200$ about 3 times the 3dmark then gtx 260 and is quite a few points over ATI radeon 6950.

now for quality of image go NVIDIA their cuda and optimus technology is AMAZING sly is just as good as XFIRE. anyhow if you ahve good i7 or ATI phenom 2 processor think about getting 3gb card as your processor will be able use the most out of your card.

hope t5his helps!!

You don't need a $300 video card for streaming.
CPU is more important, since video compression is very CPU intensive.
