    GTX 580 will do it nicely...

    GTX 560ti probably as well.

    The critical bit is "not ATI". The problem is the drivers, not your hardware as such. If you are not in a hurry, new cards are expected in Jan-Feb.

    runs perfect on my GTX580 sli setup maxed out at 1920x1200. Can't say the same for my GTX280m sli setup but that's expected.

    Default ultra setting, 580 SLI no problems for smooth gameplay. I did disable SLI to see and got noticeable slow downs at 1920x1080.

    This was before I got my new monitor, so I would imagine the difference is even bigger @ 2560x1440.

    One GTX 580 should do it though, if anything just turn off AA and use the Post Processing AA on High. Makes game look a little soft but framerate will be better.

    Stock GTX570 does ultra but dips to 45ish sometimes. Not a problem though. Great card.

    I would say to run it on all ultra settings you would need a GTX 580 and nothing less... Would prob be able to run Ultra settings with 2x AA smoothly on a GTX 580...

    Even a GTX580 cant always give it 60fps at all times, so yeah id say at least a the power of a GTX580.. SLI even better!
