Any who I'm in the process of building a gaming rig for about 800 dollars. Now I basically have everything picked out but I do have a question when it comes down to my gpu.
I am getting a 2GB GTX 560 (2gb version because I have a large monitor that runs at 1900x1200 resolution) and I've read that at resolutions higher than 1900x1080 the extra memory comes in handy. However I cant decide if I should get the 2GB ti version or just the straight 2gb version. On new-egg there is about a 50 dollar difference between the two, and I want to know if there is that big of a performance boost between the two.
I do plan on SLIing this card in about 6-8 months as well.
Other PC components I will be buying (note using a current HDD and optical drive so thats why it is not on the list)
-OCZ Fatal1ty 750W PSU
-Rosewell Challenger Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower
-ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67
-8GB G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series DDR3 1600 RAM
With the 2gb ti version card my total is about 846 less 25 dollars in MIR. Which I feel like is a decent deal.
Well after snooping around, I think I'll just get the 1GB TI version. I had read that the extra memory for this card really doesn't do too much and since I will eventually SLI in about 6 months I should be fine.
Thanks for the psu link, I may switch to that but I can get the one I have off of tigerdirect for the same price, plus it glows red! lol.
Thank you for those who posted. Will update after I get my stuff later this week.
Also can someone explain why the superclocked 560 ti is cheaper than then non-superclocked one?
