That's the 2GB version you linked which is fine. For a 1080p display that extra 1GB of frame buffer over the standard version won't gain you much. But it may help down the road, also with the new Skyrim high resolution texture DLC you may see some performance benefits from the 2GB version.

I'd say that's a solid choice, and a great price.

I saw a comparison on IGN between the high res texture pack for skyrim and the normal textures and it's a joke, the difference you gain from the high res textures is not worth the download imo. I bet there are user made texture packs that look 10 times better.

I saw those same comparisons, they do not do it justice. The difference is like night and day in person. I was shocked at how much better it looked.

I have completely written off IGN, in my opinion their PC team is a joke, and consoles are for people who can't think.

Back on topic, the AMD 6950s are at the same price point as that 2GB 560Ti, either one would make an excellent upgrade. Just personal preference on which vendor you prefer.

Honestly I would not buy a 6xxx series anything. Seems like a waste with all the new cards droping so soon.

I say either get a 7xxx series Radeon or an EVGA branded GeForce, the 7xxx series cards are the next gen so they will be current, the EVGA cards will qualify for the step up program so you can trade whatever it is in for a 6xx series GeForce in the next couple months. Anything else just seems like throwing money away because the price drops from new lines of GPUs are coming very shortly.

Core i7 4770K @ 4.4GHz | Corsair H110 | Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H | 32GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance
2x EVGA GTX 780 SLI | 256GB OCZ Vector SSD | 4TB Hitachi 7K4000
Corsair AX1200 PSU | Corsair 650D | Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Oh ok, yeah I think I will go with the EVGA 560ti card since for the games I play it will be overkill.
Thanks guys! :)
