Hello there, first this is the list of the components I will be using to build my system with in about two weeks time:

Pre Overclocked Bundle from Aria:
• Intel® Core™ i3-540 Overclocked @ 4.20GHz - Dual Core CPU
• 4GB Mushkin Silverline 1333MHz 9-9-9-24
• MSI H55M-ED55 Micro-ATX Motherboard
• Coolermaster Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler
• Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
• Pre-Assembled & Tested
• 1 Years Warranty

1TB Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 SATA-II 3.5" Hard Drive

Corsair TX Series 650W ATX2.2 SLI/Crossfire Compliant Power Supply

Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced Pure Black

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit - OEM


I am looking at two graphics cards:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 OC 768MB
- Core Clock: 715Mhz
- Memory: 768MB GDDR5
- Memory Clock: 3600MHz (Effective)
- Memory Interface: 256-Bit
- Processing Cores: 336
- Shader Clock: 1430MHz
- Bus Type: PCI-Express 2.0
- Display Connectors: 2x Dual-Link DVI-I & 1xHDMI & 1 X Analogue
- SLI Ready
- HDCP Capable
- DirectX 11 Support
- OpenGL 4.0 Support
- PhysX Enabled
- CUDA Enabled


And:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 OC 1024MB
- Core Clock: 715Mhz
- Memory: 1024MB GDDR5
- Memory Clock: 3600MHz (Effective)
- Memory Interface: 256-Bit
- Processing Cores: 336
- Shader Clock: 1430MHz
- Bus Type: PCI-Express 2.0
- Display Connectors: 2x Dual-Link DVI-I & 1xHDMI & 1 X Analogue
- SLI Ready
- HDCP Capable
- DirectX 11 Support
- OpenGL 4.0 Support
- PhysX Enabled
- CUDA Enabled

My primary use for this system will be world of warcraft playing at ultra settings in raids and battlegrounds, playing Counter strike source and maybe some newer titles like COD:Black ops, Crysis 2 etc, how would this setup handle these newer titles with those graphics cards, is it worth me shelling out the extra money for the 1024 MB graphics card honestly?

Also note that I can play those titles on my Xbox perfectly well but would prefer to play them on PC that's all.

My preferred retailer is Aria.

No room for SLi as mobo does not properly support it, I may OC it as have OCed G=card before.


Resolutin I am not sure on, probably whatever is native toa 24 inch monitor.

Thanks

Get the 1GB card, you will not regret it!

Any backup on that as most benchmarks do not seem to put them that far apart yet quite a few people rave about the 1024>768.

Also any chance somebody could go over my questions?

I have the 1GB version and you will not regret having gotten it provided that you keep the whole card cool. 678mb isn't enough for every game that is already out there.

What you have displayed, the 768mb card with 256 bit memory is wrong. it has 192 bit memory. only the 1gb version has 256 bit memory. the 1gb card has faster ram and more ram, making it the better choice
