I'm just wondering if I would benefit in any way by getting a GTX 560 Ti 2GB as opposed to getting a GTX 570 (1280MB). I game on a 1920x1080 res and maybe occasionally will be gaming 3d. I might also go with a 2GB 6950 but from what i have read nvidia generally has a more consistent higher fps in a wide range of games (if that makes sense). Normally I would chose the higher end card but I have heard newer games are beginning to take advantage of more memory (1.5GB for example)? Not sure how true this is.
Thank you to everyone in advanced

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (GTA IV (V when it comes out), Battlefield 3, Dirt 2/3
A 560ti 448 core 1.2GB would be a good recomendation, its perfromance is close to a GTX 570.
Just noticed you are in Australia, don't see the 448m cores anywhere here for sale unfortunately so a GTX 570 would be better than the standard 560ti.
A 6950 or 560ti 2GB versions are also a great choice with 2GB vram which is good for games that need the extra vram.
