Hello, I am looking to buy graphics card with an Nvidia Geforce 560 Ti core. I have found this: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GDDR5-PCI-Express-Gr... and http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics... on Amazon. They are $100 difference, I was wondering how much less powerful will it be than the one that is more expensive? Is it fine getting the cheaper, or is it much worth spending an extra $100? This is for a gaming build by the way. Thanks

The GTX 560 Ti is about as fast as two GTX 550 Tis.

For $140 you can get a GTX 460/465/SE.

Should I just go with a GTX 560 Ti then? How is the GTX 460 compared to a GTX 560 Ti? Also, how about the GTX 560? is the GTX 560 Ti much better than the GTX 560?

GTX 560 Ti is about 33% faster than GTX 460. GTX 560 (non-Ti) is a slower version of GTX 560 Ti - falls somewhere in between 560 Ti and 460, as far as I know.

Would it be worth it just to go for a GTX 560 Ti then?

The 460-1GB is a little slower than the 560. They are essentially the same GPU, but the 560 received a few internal improvements that help it operate more efficiently and at higher clock speeds by default than the 460. The 560 is slower than 560Ti. It's essentially a 560Ti with 1 SMD section disabled. As such, it has a reduced shader core count, so it simply can't process as much as fast as the 560Ti.

If you're looking for recommendations, it's improper to make one at this time because we don't know anything about the system's accompanying hardware. (The CPU, PSU, and your monitor's resolution.)

A GTX560 is a GTX460 1 GB with a higher clockspeed and the GTX560 Ti is what the GTX460 would have been if all the cores had worked straight out of the box.

What resolution? 1366x768 get a 460, for 1920x1080 get a 560 Ti.

Well, I'm not completely sure what else I exactly want. I am trying to make a Mini-ITX gaming build. I plan to put in 8gigs of RAM. Not really set on anything else yet, haven't chosen a motherboard yet. Any recommendations on boards?

Mini-ITX gaming build? Hmm... I'm clueless here. Is that even possible? I just checked Asus website, and there isn't a single board in that form-factor. Guess you'll have to go MSI or Gigabyte, though I don't remember Gigabyte EVER building Mini-ITX boards.

You should google before posting. :whistle:

Okay, I just checked... It's NOT possible. A mini-ITX is a size of Intel Atom's board. There aren't any boards like that support proper CPUs for gaming. The lowest you can go for a small gaming build is micro-ATX. Such boards sometimes even have CF/SLI support! :D 

Neither MSI nor Gigabyte have mini-ITX boards for LGA1155/LGA1366.

^ I didn't consider anything other than Z68, P67 and X58. Mistake on my side, apparently... H67 is still kicking, at least on mini-ITX =)

As for whether I should or should not stop posting, I think you have no say in that. That's exactly why forums allow multiple answers: to see the full picture, an input from multiple people is required often. When I'm thinking of gaming builds, I don't consider chipsets like H67/61 and Q67. That's where someone else who DOES consider them must intervene and do his part. I never rely on a single answer (unless it's damn obvious and clear) and if anyone does, it's their problem.
