  1. I am worried the Gigabyte PSU wouldn't do well with a 560TI, so I would lean more toward the 2500k, but I honestly don't know if I would do either one.

    I guess just get the 560TI, or alternatively an HD 6950 which may be cheaper and performs the same and have some other money ready in case you have to get a new PSU at the same time.
