i had 2 ATI 5670's in crossfire and i just recently sold them. Im tired of ATI's driver problems and im gonna get a nvidia. My processor is the AMD 955 Phenom II X4 3.2ghz and mobo is Asus M4A79XTD EVO, i have 4gb of ram but i might have 8gb in a few months. Theres 2 video cards i chose after a few weeks of looking.


EVGA 02G-P3-1568-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i can also buy it from Amazon.com, it has 3 year warranty from EVGA. Now i want to know if i really do need 2GB of ram on my video card. I currently play on 1600x900 might get 1920x1080 monitor by the end of the year. I play Battlefield Bad Company 2 and DiRT 3 also i will get Battlefield 3. I want all the highest settings maxed out. costs $280

NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Card - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/NVIDIA+-+GeForce+GTX+560+Ti...
I like this model because it is the original model from Nvidia and it has the best buy warranty included in the price. Im gonna buy it from the best buy store and whenever i want if it breaks i can go to the store and they give me a new one. it costs $300, it costs more than the 2GB model because the best buy warranty is included in the price.

I do not care about rebates and my budget is max $300 and a nice warranty is a plus
Please tell me which one would be better suited for my needs

The 1GB 560Ti's run just fine and dandy at 19 x 10.

Once in the $300 price bracket, you are in striking range of the GTX570....

Order from Newegg, not Best Buy with their 30% markups.....

That term is so overused and greatly misunderstood.

You should try clearing up the misunderstandings you come across instead of simply pointing them out. At any rate, I can't think of a better time to use the word "bottleneck" than in a question regarding his ENTIRE rig. Obviously you've decided on some very specific definition of the term, but whatever it is you've decided would surely fit into such a vague question. Maybe if we rephrase the question people won't be so offended and god forbid may give a legitimate answer (seeing as I found this thread wondering some of the same things here).

Will there be any "limiting factors" he should work on with this setup?

Also, in the 560 ti range, at 1600x900 or 1920x1080 resolution, how much difference will 2gb's vs 1gb of DDR5 memory make? Will you ever notice while running only one monitor?

Rather than digging up an old and dead thread why don't you go researching the term 'bottleneck' as it first used pertaining to computers, maybe then you would understand why I can't be bothered to explain it each and every time the phrase is brought up in misuse. :pfff:
