The price difference between these two cards is only ten dollars on newegg, both are from EVGA.

Which is the superior, performance wise? I'm mostly playing warcraft/swtor.

So do I go with 448 cores or a 2gig version of the ti?

More about : 560 2gb 448 cores

448 cores is superior due to the fact that it's actually a GTX 570 that Nvidia didn't consider good enough, it's like what... 7% weaker than a GTX 570?

The 2gb vram version is inferior, all the 2gb does is aid performance at above 1920x1200 resolution more.

Don't get the 560 if you plan on going SLI though, it can be hard to obtain another 448.

I would definatly go with the 448 cores as that is processing cores which directly affect the performance while the vram is mostly for additional monitors or bigger displays with higher resolutions.

2 gigs of ram is meaningful for very large monitors or multimonitor setup. I'd rather have the 448.

If you're playing World of Warcraft in DirectX 11 mode with details set to "Ultra" you'll get a 10 FPS advantage with the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores over the original GeForce GTX 560 Ti 384 Cores.

In other words....the 560-448 will get ya about the same fps as the Asus GTX 560 Ti Cu TOP (10% factory OC over reference 560 Ti) which is $70 less

At 2560 x 1600 I'd get the 2GB model from MSI

At 1920 x 1200 I'd get the Asus GTX 560 Ti Cu TOP ....and then OC it another 10 - 20%

2Gb of ram is rather useless

560 cannot utilize it all. even if you use it for rendering premiere video, it has the same performance as 1GB version

as was said, the 560 448 is a defective 570. Nvidia stockpiled the broken ones for several months for the special holiday release of them. so if you think you would EVER want to SLI don't get one. there's no guarantee Nvidia will keep releasing them or there will be enough defective 570s to maintain the supply.

It is actually listed on the Nvidia site as a 'Limited Edition', so if you were to SLi them then get two at same time and sit out the next couple of releases.
