What are cores in a video card

I want to replace my video card and I'm looking at 2 MSI cards: GeForce GTX 560(Fermi) and GTX 560-TI(Fermi). I was all set to buy the GTX 560 when I read a comment that it is worth the extra money to buy the GTX 560-Ti because it has 48 more cores, 384 vs 336. What are cores and in my case are they worth the extra $28 for the GTX 560-TI. As far as I can determine the rest of the specs are the same. Thanks for any input.

  1. The cores are what give the card its power and the more the better, the GTX560 non Ti is also little more than an OC'd GTX460.
