I have a GTX 560 and I was wondering if anyone knew how well this GPU is for bitcoin mining. Mainly because I was going to start on that this year. Also, how many GPU's should I get and what kind? I was going to join Deepbit with you all, but my programming understanding is minimal at best. I was going to go with GUIminer because I'm not sure about Phoenix. It's all so new and there is a lot of information to cover. I read as much as I can in my spare time, but still feel like I come up short. So, I may have more questions and concerns.

My computer I was planning on using is running a Sabertooth 990fx with AMD 8-core, 16GB ddr3 1600 (PC3 12800), and a GTX 560 (at about 800Mhz). Running windows pro 64-bit. Yeah, I know it's windows, but I was using it for games mainly and don't want to mess with wine.
